Giant Squid is back!  First he was the biggest thing in the ocean, and now he's the best artist.  Giant Squid loves to draw all of the things he sees in the ocean, but some of his friends aren't quite as excited with his artistic enthusiasm when the ink starts splatting around on them.  Sherry once again delights with silly squid antics and beautiful watercolor illustrations.

The circus is starting, and Zebra accidentally steps on Lion's toe.  Lion gives chase, and soon we are zooming out of the circus, through the city, past the coastal park, out on the pier, and into boats on the ocean!  When Lion's inflatable raft is punctured by a narwhal, suddenly the tables are turned.  What will Zebra do?  Colorful illustrations, large-eyed animals, and rhyming text combine to create an adventurous read aloud!

It's a quiet morning at the zoo...that is until there's a huge elephant sneeze!  Before you know it, the sneezing travels to each of the animals.  But each of those animals have sneezes so big that hippo mud, seal water, and rubber balls are flying through the air.  The zookeeper has quite the job, wiping noses, cleaning messes, and getting medication to all of the sneezy animals.  Just when everything is settled down, he hears something else that might be contagious -- even for you!
