What's New? The Zoo!

A Zippy History of Zoos

by Kathleen Krull


With friendly facts, funny pictures, and animals galore, WHAT'S NEW? THE ZOO! is history to roar for!

Did you know . . .

* The first zoo was established forty-three hundred years ago in present-day Iraq?
* Aztec King Moctezuma II had such an incredible collection of animals that it took six hundred men and women to care for them?
* Zoos were crucial in the development of scientific theories of classification and evolution?
* Fifty buffalo passed through Grand Central Station in 1907 on their way to the Bronx Zoo?

Kathleen Krull and Marcellus Hall bring jazzy style and a globe-trotting eye to our millennia-long history of keeping animals -- and the ways animals have changed us in turn.
