If you guessed that ZooZical is a zoo musical, you'd be correct. This playful picture book by Judy Sierra imagines what the animals do when no one's around on a blustery day. To escape the "midwinter doldrums," they put on a show, complete with score, set, costumes and posters. Young children will enjoy this silly story, and Arthur creator Marc Brown's upbeat illustrations are a nice complement to the rhyming text.
