Felicity Floo Visits the Zoo

author/illustrator: E.S. Redmond

All of the animals down at the zoo
Are snuffling and snorting and sneezing ACHOO.

Why are the hyenas crying boo-hoo? And what gave the rhino a sickly green hue? It starts when Felicity Floo wipes her red, runny nose and transfers the goo. . . . Kids will be happily grossed out to follow the icky trail as she pets one hapless, bleary-eyed creature after another. With whimsical, stylized illustrations showing Felicity’s handprints on every spread, this cautionary tale will have readers roaring out loud—and racing off to wash their hands!

Follow a sniffly girl on a hands-on trip to the zoo, and you’ll find one miserable menagerie -- and a comical ode to the virtue of tissues. (Ages 2-5)

author’s comments:
E. S. Redmond was inspired to write this, her first book, after a trip with her children to a petting zoo. She says, “I remember watching all these smiling, wobbling toddlers surrounding the animals. Every little nose was running, and the sheep resembled very large mounds of tissue. It struck me as altogether funny and ironic that the hand soap was mounted on the fence at the exit. Nice for us, not so great for the sheep.” E. S. Redmond lives in Massachusetts.
