“What enormous animal was up
here in the tree with me?”
Leaving a home where there were too many koalas on too few trees, Harry Hiccers relocates with his family to the opposite scenario: a zoo with trees but no koalas. Even while hiding in the trees, watching from above, Harry can’t help but make new friends. Can his appetite for eating foods beyond Eucalyptus, creating his hiccups, give him the courage to explore the new zoo?
The Harry Hiccers story A New Zoo captures kids attention through the silly humor of hiccups, then offers suspense and intrigue as the characters build a friendship. A great story for calming fears about the first day of school or moving to a new environment. All this happens in approximately 800 words.
From the creative writer Angela Larson and immensely talented illustrator Traci Dibble.
