The Zoo by Anthony Browne

2H have been increasingly fascinated with the hidden messages conveyed through images. Many of our students were amazed by the detail and meanings embedded into Anthony Brownes images. The comment "is the zoo for people or animals" was a deep insight made by the mother in the story and richly discussed by the students. The discrepancy between the images and the text was discovered and drew out the comment, "this is like on the ads on TV, they show an image but the words are saying different things".
