About the Book
Watch out! A giant ZOO AH-CHOOOO is headed your way! Funny sound effects and wacky illustrations make this a laugh-out-loud favorite!

Snow Leopard started it: Ah-choooo! Elephant passed it along: RRRrrr-eeeEEE-ahh-PHOOOO! Now twelve Seals are spreading it:
Ka-FrrroooOOOOOOOOMMMMM! A geyser bursts, a mud volcano erupts, and chaos reigns! The zookeeper tries his best to minimize the mayhem, but he can't keep up! Finally, he calls in the animal doctor. At last all is again quiet at the zoo until . . . was that a YAAAAWN?

PICTURE BOOK

THE REVIEWS ARE IN!

"Mandel's euphonious text is a pleasure to read aloud, and it would be easy to encourage audiences to participate by echoing each animal's unique sneeze. The amusing asides of the visitors, the crazy-sounding sneezes ("Kah-bah-UMppphhhHHHH!!!"" sneezes the Hippo), and the frequent situational humor will all get kids giggling as well."—The Bulletin
