Zoo Boy Publisher's Summary

A hilarious, delightful debut by actress Sophie Thompson.

Hello, dear listener. Are you sitting, lying down, standing on your head, eating a jam sandwich comfortably? Then I'll begin....

I want to introduce you to a boy called Vince, whose birthday it is today.... Vince is a normal boy with an unusual dislike for animals. Well, you'd feel the same if your father was always working at a zoo and your mother had run off with a lion tamer. Then, on his ninth birthday, Vince discovers he has 'the gift'. He can talk to animals!

You think this is amazing? Perhaps you should meet the spoiled and demanding zoo animals that Vince encounters. There's a penguin who wants fish fingers, a flamingo that wants pink candy floss and an owl that wants sugared mice. Now Vince is expected to meet their demands...on his birthday! But everyone seems to have forgotten about that.

    Zoo Boy and his host of talking animal friends are back! And this time, they're solving crime.... Another hilarious and delightful story by actress Sophie Thompson. Eight year old Vince (otherwise known somewhat affectionately as Zoo Boy) can talk to animals. Which is handy, as his dad works at the zoo! The only problem is, the animals are rather demanding.... But for once the animals are going to have to put their selfish ways aside, as there's a jewel thief on the loose.
