Rosie and David are at the zoo; the first animals they visit are always Burma and Kashin the elephants. But Burma has broken out of her enclosure! Rosie and David set out to find her, asking one giraffe, two hippos, three lions, four goats, five meerkats, six seals, seven wallabies, eight parrots and nine monkeys for help; but to no avail. Throughout the illustrations readers are given a visual clue of Burma's presence (for example a cloud in the shape of an elephant, her shadow in water); each illustration is packed with detail for children to wander through. The final spread has hidden within it the numbers 1 to 9 for children to find.show more
