Two brothers and their parents spend a day at the zoo, looking at the animals in the cages - or is it that the animals are watching the visitors? This winner of the 1993 Kate Greenaway Medal is a teasing examination of the relationship between man and animals, and the role of zoos.

It is a great tool for teaching ideas about perspective, my son had never imagined that people see things differently from him.
Also my son is able to understand focalisation and the difference between direct and indirect speech, something I didn't learn until reading Joyce for my English Lit degree!
There is so much to read in the illustrations that my son scrutinises every page trying to find new things. The illustrations are full of symbolism and again, this book is perfect to introduce ideas of symbolism to a child. He is now (without realising) anaylising the book by using his own ideas to work out what each symbol means. I did not even dream of teaching my son these literay techniques before I found this book but it makes it so easy to understand.
My son loves this book and really enjoys reading it, he does not realise that he is learning from it.
I cannot rate this book highly enough and will be buying more from Anthony Browne.
