Since monkeys and elephants and crocodiles don't make good tour guides who better to walk us through the inner workings of a zoo than the zookeeper? Roland Smith, award winning writer and 20-year zookeeper, introduces young readers to little known facts-sometimes in the middle of the night zookeepers do go back to check the locks, giraffes don't know how to duck making it difficult to drive under a bridge when zookeepers transport them from one location to another, and exactly how much time do zookeepers spend with the pooper-scooper? Z is for Zookeeper gives children a front row seat at the zoo-one of the ultimate childhood places.
