Fraidyzoo


Fraidyzoo
by Thyra Heder
Abrams Books for Young Readers, 2013. Unpaged.  Picture Book

 When her family decides to spend a day visiting the zoo, Little T., has vague memories of being terrified by one of the animals on her last visit there. Feeling a little nervous about meeting that frightening creature again, she's not sure she wants to go. In an attempt to help her face her fears, her family dresses up like different animals, trying to figure out which one Little T. is scared of.  The family's costumes become more and more creative, elaborate, and over the top as the book progresses--with Little T. still unable to name the animal that frightened her so badly.

Which animal was it that scared her so bad? Read this delightfully funny book to find out.
