A gloriously silly book in which a host of hilarious animals thwart the author's attempts to create a serious book.

A serious book is black-and-white, and it informs the reader. So why are a donkey in a flowered hat, a laughing zebra, a hissing snake, a marching penguin and cavorting monkeys in this book? Join the fun as the animals take control, effortlessly and with great style and humour, in this new picture book that is both very silly and very sophisticated, to be enjoyed by all ages...
