About this item
A zoo keeper makes his late-night rounds of the zoo, saying good night to all the animals before he heads for home. However, unbeknownst to him, the gorilla has stolen his keys and is secretly freeing all the animals from the cages. The sleepy zoo keeper doesn't realize that all the animals have followed him home, but luckily his wife is aware of the situation and knows just how to get all the animals back into their proper places--or does she? This nearly wordless story is illustrated with colorful drawings.
When an unobservant zookeeper goes home, all the animals he thinks he has left behind in the zoo follow him. On board pages.
