Genre: Picture Book, Realistic Fantasy
Grades: 1-3

Never, EVER Shout in a Zoo by Karma Wilson is a precious story that introduces zoo animals and creative adjectives to young readers. Some new creative words that a child would learn are convining, clever, and malicious. Some animals they would see would include bears, moose’s, and apes.  In the story a young girl is at the Zoo and is advising the reader not to shout in the zoo. Throughout the story the girl is showing what would happen if someone shouted in the zoo. This book would definitely be put under the category of realistic fantasy since what happens in the book is not likely to occur in real life. The text follows the realistic illustrations perfectly. If you are curious as to what will happen when there is a shout in the zoo, read this book and you will soon discover!
