In this classic child's fantasy featuring John Burningham's delightfully expressive artwork, an unlocked door leads to pandemonium - and one little girl's formidable voice reins in an entire menagerie!

From one of the world's finest and most distinguished picture book makers, John Burningham, comes the story of a little girl called Sylvie who lives every child's wildest fantasy. In her bedroom wall Sylvie spots a door ... and beyond that door she finds a passage ... and beyond the passage she discovers ... the zoo! So Sylvie decides to bring a few small animals, like a little bear, into her bedroom at night time, just for a cuddle. And then she takes the penguins back for a splashy bath. Once, she even brings back the monkeys but, really, they were much too messy. No matter what Sylvie does though, she always makes sure to close the door in her bedroom wall. Until, one day, she forgets... John Burningham's much-celebrated storytelling and illustration will quickly draw readers into this riotous animal adventure!
