Mr Peek and the Misunderstanding at the Zoo by Kevin Waldron

Mr Peek and the Misunderstanding at the Zoo by Kevin WaldronA case of the wrong jacket and overheard comments that are misunderstood.

Setting of to his job as zoo keeper Mr Peek accidentally picks up the his son’s jacket. Due to his uncomfortable state Mr Peek becomes very worried about the safety of his job and begins to speak his thoughts aloud. Unfortunately every time he makes a comment it is not very complementary and the animals he walks past think he is talking about them, when he is in fact talking about himself. This unhappy state of affairs is resolved when Mr Peek’s bumps into his son who is wearing a very large jacket that looks very much like his own. With renewed vigour (and his own jacket) Mr Peek retraces his steps around the zoo but this time his comments are self-congratulatory which have the effect of cheering up the animals.

Very stylised images with a 1960’s feel illustrate this text.


About booksfrommybookshelf

I am a passionate reader of children's books (Primary aged) with a particular interest in picture books. I am always on the look out for children's books at are written by authors from other countries. I am also keen on technology and try to keep abreast of what is happening in a fast changing world. At present my day job is to support teachers and local authorities in the Yorkshire and Humber region (UK), which I really enjoy. Another aspect of my work is to present nationally developed work for the National Strategies. With economic cuts my job will terminate in Spring next year and I may be carrying out independent work based around high quality picture books. My other interest include my allotment, knitting and last but not least my family. My Twitter name is Orlama.
