Bruno Munari's Zoo
Title: Bruno Munari's Zoo
Author: Bruno Munari
Illustrations and brief text introduce more than twenty zoo animals, including a rhinoceros that is always ready to fight and a peacock that struts proudly because he is the peacock.
Bruno Munari was an internationally acclaimed artist, designer, and children’s book creator. A contemporary of Leo Leonni, his books have been hailed as “among the most original, inventive and beautiful ever created.” Zoo is among his most graphically stunning works. Meet the kangaroo, who is all legs but doesn’t know it, the zebra in his striped pajamas, and the humpy camel, who has a seat for you. Young readers will enjoy Munari’s bright, bold illustrations; older readers will appreciate his wry humor. From children to collectors, Bruno Munari’s Zoo is certain to enchant a whole new generation.
“Graphic designer Bruno Munari is one of the most inventive picture book creators I know. I have been inspired, entertained, and in awe of his work since I was a graphic design student in Germany more than 50 years ago. And Zoo has been one of my favorites. I am delighted that it is available once again for a new generation of picture book readers of all ages.” Eric Carle
