KIRKUS REVIEW

Danny Dugan was ideally qualified for his summer job at the zoo. Since early childhood, Danny was given wild cubs to raise by his father who rescued these small creatures on various hunting expeditions. Even now Danny was immersed in the problems of Zelda, a home grown raccoon. Having been chosen as junior host on the television program, ""Zoo Story"", Danny comes into contact not only with the creatures he knows and loves but also with sum interesting human beings. Every Saturday morning Danny assists the director in explaining the habits of animals to many young viewers. During the week, he is kept busy at the zoo. Especially fond of the great ape Komba and impressed with his intelligence, danny is horrified when one foolhardy worker, Jack Turner, enters the animal's cage on a . The next time Turner enters the cage, gonds the animal to violence, but Komba escapes the blows of the steel book and managers to knock Turner out. Filled with details of this highly special and unique setting, this backstage story will attract children who enjoy their visits to the zoo.
