Zoo In The Attic
By Hilary Mckay
Anything can happen at Paradise House and normally does! This delightful series of six stories about three riotous children and their madcap adventures is written by award-winning author, Hilary McKay.
Danny is mad about animals and wants a sheepdog for his birthday. But instead he gets a goldfish called Oscar. This inspires him to set up his own zoo - in the attic above his flat - a plan that proves to have it's own problems!
Hilary McKay won the Guardian Children`s award with her first novel, The Exiles. Her subsequent work has achieved recognition - The Exiles at Home won the Smarties Prize, whilst Saffy`s Angel, the first in the Casson Family series, won the Whitbread Award, for which the third book Permanent Rose was also shortlisted.
