    The watercolors are captivating. The poem is engrossing. What a wonderful idea to set the story at night and have the animals become the observers. Each animal expression is one of interest and puzzlement. Be certain to examine the starry backgrounds. I believe there are stellar constellations painted that echo the animal pictured. Certainly a book to be enjoyed by all ages. To the author and the talented illustrator, keep swingin'!

    What a great book for kids learning to read and those reading to learn. A lovely story about our relationship with the animals and their relationships with us. Discussing how we treat and judge newcomers others at first glance based on our perceptions make for great discussion with the kids. The book is beautifully illustrated in a way that captures the curiosity of the animals that meet and critique this new animal. I highly recommend it for your family.

    This is a wonderful book for all ages. My 5 and 8 year old were engaged and amazed from the 1st page. The beautifully written poem was fun and easy to read as the illustrations brought us into the zoo in a dreamlike manner. The idea that the animals may be as perplexed and interested in our human differences produced a fun post-read dialogue as well. This is a book that will be read over and over again in our home.

    "Zoo Night" is absolutely charming, and it will entertain children as well as those who read it to children. Gerard Brost's dream-like tale of someone who accidentally spends a night in the zoo reverses the normal relationship between zoo residents and zoo visitors. Through the poetic text and gorgeous illustrations, we learn from the zoo animals how truly odd we humans are--something to seriously consider. Never threatening, Jan Marie Aramini's richly-colored illustrations are soft and compassionate, yet infused with a zoologist's eye for the natural world. Each of the animals encountered in the poem is staring intensely and inquisitively at the reader, just as they must encounter us during our visits to the zoo. How curious we must be to them!
