This is not a handbook for farmers. Farmers look after chickens, cows and pigs. Anyone can do that. This is not a handbook for zookeepers. Zookeepers look after monkeys, elephants and lions. That's easy. This is a handbook for zoomers. Zoomers look after very special beasts… Discover the secret of the shiger's stripy wool, the challenges of owning a loyal but gigantic dogephant and the special skills of the super-fast horsodile in this mind-bending, creature-blending debut from husband and wife team Thiago and Ana de Moraes.
