Review: Mrs. Golightly doesn’t like any animals at all and is always shooing them away, then suddenly a Zoo opens up next door and all the animals invade her house, she wants them out for good.

Adorable, Repetitive, Humorous and Utterly Fun.

Mrs Golightly really didn’t like or care for literally any of the animals and told them over and over again to shoo she didn’t like them. The animals continue to get everywhere in her house, but when they stay out things change.

I really liked the rhyming and the repeating of the lines, it’s a perfect book for young readers as they can read it easily, learn the story quickly and can join in. These types of books are always a perfect hit with young children.

The illustrations were really sweet and made the story that much funnier seeing everything on the pages that the animals were doing. I really liked this book a lot and I really highly recommend it if you are looking for a fun, hilarious, wacky, interactive and easy read for your child they will really enjoy this book.
