Dumheiten at its loosest and Seussest in the lastest eagerly-hailed silliness by the master of inanities. "`But if I ran a zoo,' said young Gerald McGrew"...and a collection of splendiferous doohinkees parade across the pages as young McGrew travels to odd places, tempting his zoo creatures into nets and boxes. There is a lion with ten legs, a family of What do you -know (four placid white blobs in a pleased family group athwart a snowplow), a Thwerll (a mournful entity with legs criss-crossing and coiling like a road map), the Russian Palooski ("whose headski is redski and belly is blueski") -- and so it goes while people cry: "What do you suppose he will capture this week!" The illustrations -- some full page --are in three colors. It is true that some children do not take to unrelieved nonsense, and this book has little coordinated story --so feel out your readers and buyers. However, this will not disappoint the devoted.
