  2. Wilfred Tudor-Wills says:

    I like this book because it has a baby that can change in to different animals. The End.

  3. Alfred Enock-Brown says:

    I loved seeing the baby turning into the warthog and all the other animals but best of all when he turned into a man and the grown ups had turned into birds!

  4. Mr Ellis says:

    In nursery, Arthur liked the book, especially the bit where Zagazoo was hairy.
    Lots of people in nursery liked Zagzoo as a dragon.
    Daisy liked the bit where Zagazoo was a baby and was thrown in the air!
    Ava liked the bit where Zagazoo was a charming boy!
    We liked it a lot

    Lovely book to read in Nursery. We like it a lot!

  12. claque says:

    Zagazoo deserves being on this list because it makes everyone laugh. My favourite stage is when Zagazoo turns into a fire breathing dragon – this is the stage my brother is in at the moment. The illustrations are amazing and truly support the story.

  15. llincoln says:

    When I was younger I really liked this book it is so funny.

  16. Frances Hartland says:

    I found this book funny. I was a bit scared when Zagazoo turned into a hairy creature as I thought he may become a monster. I’m glad he didn’t and he turned into a young man. I really found it funny when his parents turned into pelicans, that made me laugh.

  17. Oscar Freeman says:

    I liked all of the story, especially when zagazoo turned into a big hairy creature. It made me laugh a lot!

  18. Wilfred Riley says:

    i didn’t like the bit where the big monster arrived. mummy thought that bit was funny. the best bit was the monkey hanging onto the curtains.

  19. Rian Koehler says:

    I liked it when they threw the baby to each other and then when he turned into all the animals.

  20. Na-Shawn Williams says:

    I liked that it kept turning into things.

  21. aroberts says:

    Zagazoo is funny because it changed every time. It changed and changed and got worse and worse. But it was funny.

  22. eroberts says:

    This is a crazy story with lots of animals to learn about. One of them looks like chewbacca from Starwars. I liked this story because it was very funny and Zagazoo kept changing into different things.

  23. mrothwellstopps says:

    Zaga zoo is a crazy and funny book

  24. rhenry says:

    This book was about a baby who changed into lots of different animals. It was strange. I liked that he kept changing. I liked the pictures because they looked like the pictures in the Willy Wonka books.

  25. mmaccallumhall says:

    Zaga zoo is a crazy and funny book, well so is every Quentin Blake book.

  26. djaiden says:

    I liked it that the baby turned into different animals. My Dad says I’m like the warthog and my sister is a bit like the elephant. My Mum and Dad are like dinosaurs.

  27. astrigo says:

    My favourite part of this book is where the baby turns into a dragon?

  31. kcarpenter says:

    Zagazoo Zagazoo it is amazing! I love it! I loved it how the parents turned into a pair of pelicans.

  32. ablackburncave says:

    I think Zagagoo is extra great because he changes into funny animals and they find him in a wrapper in the post, which is coo coo crazy

  33. anecea says:

  34. ibuglione says:

    This amazingly funny book is verry imaginative cool and lots of other things and I would highly recomend it

  35. cburgess says:

    I thought this book was hilarious. I particularly liked the pictures of the baby flying through the air in the early pages. And the picture of the ‘strange hairy creature’ too! I wonder if Zagazoo is perhaps as much written for grown ups as chilldren? !!!

  39. aridgeway says:

    There is a baby who turns into a thing that screeches, then an elephant, then a bat, then into a dragon, then a big hairy monster, and then a nice man who is nice and polite. I like that they all find love.

  40. madom2 says:

    Zagazoo is a transforming mess until he turned into a nice lovely kind boy.

  41. Agnes Milne says:

    This is one of the best and funniest picture books I’ve ever read.
