Colorful, precise, and whimsical digitally colored pencil illustrations abound with delightful comic details...Festooned with feathers, jewels, and flowers, the previously hidden animals treat Max and Mia (and readers) to a visually extravagant, spectacular celebration. An exuberant, surprising, and unforgettable trip to the zoo.
