A hilarious story with an important message

When an elephant in the city zoo picks up a beauty magazine, she makes a horrifying discovery: her wrinkles make her look ancient! After covering herself with anti-aging cream, she passes the magazine on to the other animals in the zoo. Soon the panda is trying to get rid of the dark circles under his eyes, the lion is getting the latest celebrity hairstyle, and the boa constrictor is dressing in leopard print (snakeskin was so last season). But how will people react to the animals' new looks?

This zany, satirical picture book addresses body image issues and reminds readers to appreciate themselves for who they are.

Publishers Weekly
"Trains a laser eye on the way the fashion industry manipulates consumers-a theme more often reserved for older readers, but dealt with effectively here. . . . The fashion problems Roskifte creates for each animal are credible and comic, and the animals look suitably ridiculous after they've 'fixed' their problems. . . . Readers won't fail to grasp the moral of this modern fable."
