"There was tiger poo, lion poo, prickly porcupine poo,
Plummeting giraffe poop that landed with a splat.
Dollops of gnu poo, bouncy kangaroo poo,
A trail of drippy droppings from a fat wombat!"
Zoo Keeper Bob is exhausted. There's too much poo in the zoo - and he's the one who has to scoop it up. Then one day, a mysterious glowing poo appears! Could it be alien poop from outer space? And what on EARTH will Bob do with it?
Perfect for fans of The Dinosaur who Pooped Christmas , children will laugh out loud at this gloriously poopy, funny picture book! Packed with humour, the romping rhyme and deliciously cheeky wordplay is a joy to read aloud. From the author of Dragon Stew, Steve Smallman and illustrator, Ada Grey ( Shh! Don't Wake the Royal Baby) . If you like this book, then you'll LOVE Cock-a-Doodle-Poo , also by Steve Smallman

After reading all the good reviews we just had to pick this up and it didn't disappoint! What child doesn't love reading about poo? Funny story about lots of different animals with very funny illustrations. We particularly loved studying the impressive poo collection!

From the moment I read the title with my children they couldn't help but be hooked on what was coming next. It was a clever, tongue twister, rhyming romp of deliciously descriptive fun! I enjoyed reading it out loud as the words flowed very nicely. The illustrations were bright and interesting - prompting further discussion before I was allowed to turn each page. My 7 year old daughter has insisted on reading it to herself and her little brother now each night since it has arrived! It has been a very clever and very humorous to read ! Would definitely recommend it to others.

Bob McGrew is the Zoo Keeper. His worst job is having to pick up the animal poo. There is so much of it and the animals are all super messy! One day Bob finds some green glowing poo. He thinks it's from outer space. WHAT will he do?    I liked this book a lot. It's really funny that he had to pick up all the poo. The story is hilarious and made me laugh out loud. I love the monkeys best!     The pictures are brilliant! Especially the ones at the beginning and end of the book, with the bottles of different animal poo.

What a fabulous book for discussing every two year olds favourite topic...poo!!! Bob looks after the animals but doesn't really like dealing with poo! The illustrations are brilliant but I did find the flow of the book wasn't very good. The two year olds in my room really enjoyed this book and thought the constant use of the word poo was very funny indeed.

Absolutely hilarious! A book about some unusual poo which becomes a real attraction and ends up making the zoo keeper some money. All children love a book about poo, don't they?

I chose this book for Scarlett as a birthday present based on reviews I had seen on Toppsta. I thought it was going to be chaptered but when it arrived I was aware it was a picture book. I wanted something that would push Scarlett's reading ability up a bit but she breezed through it!
Poo in the Zoo was a beautifully illustrated book and it jumped out of the pages as soon as you started to read it. It was a real hit with the girls as it involved poo, their all time favourite word!
The zoo keeper spends his time cleaning al the poo at the zoo. One day the iguana eats all the food in the restaurant and produces a glowing poo. No one has ever seen a poo like this including the owner of the poo museum! Of course, he must have this amazing poo for his museum so he buys it and zoo keeper Bob can then afford a poo cleaning up machine!
We have read this book many times at bedtime and every time it results in lots of laughter and silliness! A great book full of great picture and easy to read.

I picked this book in the library as I thought it would be funny by the title of the story.

It contained lots of different animals at the zoo and of course their poo. I enjoyed reading this story and was able to relate to Bob as a zookeeper

I did like this story, it does have rhyming sentences but I found my flow always went a bit skeewhiff when the museum part came in.
Other than that a zoo keeper that collects all the poo had me & the kids in giggle heaven anything with poo or bum in is hysterical at the moment to my 4 yr old & my 8 yr old will come to see the different ones especially when the iguana does an 'alien poo' 
What a great idea.
