A laughing giraffe surprises some bears who shock the crocs... and all too soon there's a rapping zebra and a waltzing rhino, all causing a hullabaloo at the zoo. It takes Baboon playing his bassoon to restore calm, in a story that will resonate with many parents and carers attempting bedtime with young children.

Zanna Davidson has written over fifty books for children, both non-fiction and fiction. Her stories for children include the Fairy Ponies, Fairy Unicorns and Billy and the Mini Monsters series for Usborne. She lives in the countryside in a cottage on the edge of some deep, dark woods with two small boys and her scruffy black dog, Fred.
Alison Friend was on vacation one year, making jams and chutneys with her husband, when they discovered a recipe for "Figgy Mustardo." The chutney was good, but Alison thought the name was better suited for a feisty little dog. That's how Figgy came to be! Alison is also the author and illustrator of Freddy & Frito and the Clubhouse Rules, which Kirkus Reviews called "a playful, lighthearted lesson about peacekeeping and place-keeping." She lives with her family in the Lake District in England.
