Unwrapping Some Illustrations 

The Book

Mrs. Golightly does NOT like animals and she is constantly shooing them out of her garden.  Pesky critters get lost!  

One day a whole zoo moves next door!  Oh my!  Not only are the animals next door they start invading her garden and inside her house.  She tries her best to shoo them away.  They literally take over her toilet ( a kangaroo on her loo), a giraffe in her bath, an alligator on her radiator, a pair of llamas in her pyjamas, bats in her hats and the epitome of disgusting...ants in her pants, just to name a few.  
She HAS HAD IT !  What can Mrs. Golightly do to eradicate these rude invasive creatures?  

 This hilarious fun rhyming book will have kids in stitches.  The illustrations are expressive, engaging and perfectly enhance the text. I truly love them.  This would be a wonderful read aloud to share with the intended targeted age group 2-5 years.  "Shoo!" is  Susie Bower's first picture book and I can't wait for many more.  I highly, highly recommend this book!
