APP OF THE DAY
See you at the Petting Zoo
Illustrated storytelling the whole family will love.
Petting Zoo by C. Niemann
Animated animal picture book
What could be more fun than a day out with your little ones at the Petting Zoo? Say hello to a collection of cute, wacky animals (an elephant, a giraffe, a lion, a shark and a hedgehog to name just a few) and watch over 100 quirky hand-drawn animations unfold before your eyes.
Petting Zoo’s residents are an extremely active bunch. Swipe and tap the screen and you’ll see them react in the most hilarious and often surprising ways. What happens when a fish takes on a much bigger animal in a see-saw contest? Have you ever seen the sharp-edged teeth of an alligator morph into the legs of a giraffe? And how would a lion react when hosed with water from the trunk of an elephant who’s been having a little bit too much fun at bathtime? As you can imagine, there’s never a dull moment when you’re hanging out with this cast of animals.
Each animal has its own accompanying musical sounds, and you’ll soon be lost in the rhythm of this witty storybook. And the wit and wry humour that’s characteristic to life in Petting Zoo is thanks to the app’s acclaimed German illustrator, Christoph Niemann. His unconventional approach to storytelling has made for a fun twist on the traditional children’s book genre.
Time spent exploring in Petting Zoo will not only boost your child’s imagination and creative inclinations, but seeing their amused reaction to the mischief and mayhem these characters rustle up is a joy. So, if you’re curious about whether a sausage dog can do the worm (aren’t we all!) then be prepared for lots of belly laughs with your kids on this wild trip to the zoo.
