Book review: Mr. Peek and the Misunderstanding at the Zoo by Kevin Waldron

Mr. Peek and the Misunderstanding at the ZooMr. Peek and the Misunderstanding at the Zoo by Kevin Waldron

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I picked up this book because I like the illustrations. My son likes the illustrations too but thought that the text fonts and they way they were arranged are a bit confusing and distracting. To me it is ok.

Nonetheless, on personal note, I think the story is quirky and hilarious! It is about a zookeeper, Mr. Peek, who has mistakenly dressed in his son’s small jacket. He thought he is getting fat and mumbles about it while walking pass a hippo. The hippo thought the remark is intended for her and feels sad. And then Mr. Peek goes on mumbling out loud about the food he ate, his wrinkles, etc which the animals thought are intended for them. They become sad altogether.

Mr. Peek finds out that he was wearing his son’s jacket when he met him at the zoo. They switched jacket and Mr. Peek managed to restore the animals happiness as he goes on walking back pass the animals muttering happy remarks; totally the opposite of what he had said earlier.

* Suitable for children aged 7 and above. Of course, adults can read it too.

          1. Betul Syuq, suka baca, susah berhenti tu yang payah. Tapi sebab kita tk gerak guna kenderaan awam sgt kan, semua pun drive then masa lapang mmg banyak utk urus diri. Suka baca novel Melayu tulisan Faisal Tehrani, Sri Rahayu. Layan juga novel lagha macam Sophie Kinsella hahahah (^_^) kadang-kadang baca buku motivasi juga, autobiografi.

    1. Hahhh Farahana, Sophie Kinsella!! Hari tu Popular jual buku dia (writing as Madeleine Wickham) sebuah RM8 ja. Apa lagi… saya pun beli 3 buah. Tak sempat baca lagi… janji beli dulu.

    2. Kalau novel Inggeris, saya peminat tegar buku Lee Child – Jack Reacher Thriller. Saya mmg tak boleh mula baca buku dia. Baru nak berenti, tapi baca lagi sebab suspen nak tahu lagi.
