Rock Island, IL - Blake Ross, award-winning local artist and creator of "Daddy...Why doesn't Santa use Elephants?" has turned his creative skills and illustrative experience into authoring another magical picture book titled, "Why isn't the Zoo...a Pet Store, too?" that again unleashes the child in everyone!
"Why isn't the Zoo...a Pet Store, too?" is a visual treat & laugh-along fun for everyone... especially those who Love animals and enjoy visiting the Zoo. The wonder of seeing such majestic creatures naturally unlocks a child's imagination to the GRAND ADVENTURES one could have with such animals as AMAZING PETS. The FUN & HUMOR are doubled as the parents imagine the MISADVENTURES of having such EXTREME ANIMALS at HOME.
Zoos are important in the Preservation & Care of all Animals Worldwide along with building the foundations of Eco-friendly & Family Values. Some of the Ross Family's favorite memories are of trips to the Zoos they have had the pleasure of visiting while traveling the country. The PRICELESS Memories from numerous trips to our local Niabi Zoo in Coal Valley, IL inspired the Ross Family to create and share this latest, classic tale.
