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.
