ZOE’S RESCUE ZOO: THE CUDDLY KOALA
AMELIA COBB reviewed by Zoe Bailey, aged seven
The Zoe’s Rescue Zoo books are all about a girl called Zoe and her special mouse lemur friend Meep, who live at her great uncle’s rescue zoo. Great Uncle Horace has recently rescued a baby koala from Australia. Zoe helps the koala, called Kip, to learn to climb, but sadly Kip falls out of the tree. Zoe has to find a way that the koala feels safe again and she can keep looking after him. Luckily, Zoe has an amazing gift: she can actually talk to animals! With the help of a backpack she builds Kip’s confidence to be off the ground again.
There are other books all about baby animals in the series, and this book is suitable for 5-8 years. I have enjoyed other books in this series, because they are heart-warming and funny.
The cuddly koala is my favourite book in this series, because I really like koalas.
