Author(s): Amelia Cobb
Zoe loves living at her uncle's rescue zoo because there's always something exciting going on. And Zoe also has an amazing secret...She can actually TALK to the animals! Zoe's uncle has just brought the cutest baby penguin to the zoo. But Zoe thinks there's something puzzling about the little animal. He just doesn't seem to know he's a penguin.
Amelia Cobb is sadly not a real person, although there is a real author behind the Zoe's Rescue Zoo stories. If Amelia did exist, we like to think that she'd live by the sea with her two goldfish, Flip and Flop, and write her stories at a small desk by the window, listening to the radio and wearing a brightly coloured scarf at all times.Sophy Williams is an award-winning illustrator with twenty-five years experience illustrating children's books.
