HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERon 27 March 2009
The Daily Zoo is a charming little art book drawn by Chris Ayers, an animal a day.

This book was started one year after he was diagnosed with leukemia, which he has since recovered from after a long period of treatment. In the introduction, he says it's to give him an opportunity to celebrate the gift of each healthy day.

The caricatured animals are just fun to look at. Sometimes it will be a portrait, sometimes the animals will be in strange settings, such as the sick flamingo in scrubs on the book cover. Chris Ayers captions each day on his inspiration and thoughts.

At the start of each month, he also talks about his recovery journey battling leukemia. It's a journal written from the heart.

This book is creative, inspirational and beautiful. I am definitely getting Volume 2 when it comes out in November 2009.

There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.

This book is simply amazing, this guy is so talented. I keep this book around me whenever I want to draw and need some inspiration. And also it's quite cheap knowing how many drawings that are printed

Interesting story and very easy to read. Illustrations are great and varied in style, very good for inspiration if you draw.

It's been on my bedside table since it arrived and I dip into almost every day. Hundreds of amusing cartoons, brilliant sketches in many different styles underlying a positive story of the indomitable nature of the human spirit.

Summary: man with life threatening illness focuses on the positive by challenging himself to draw one animal a day for a year.

when i first saw the book on the internet it kind of stuck in my mind for days i have only seen the cover on a small picture
at some point i decided to do a litlle reaserch for the book to decide wether i would bye it or not
whithin the first few pages my mind instantly took a journey with every character , i was so .... well there are some things that can't be described in words over the internet .!!!
Overall a great book a must have in your collection if you are a fun of cartoon ,illustrations, scetch,art,cgart you name it you will never regret having it .. when i saw that a second volume is on it's way well i just can't wait to get my hands on it
