Hi all! Today, I am posting a review for a blog tour that is organized by Digital Reads Blog Tours. Some of my fellow book bloggers are joining this tour as well, and you can find them and their coinciding dates in the above banner!
This blog tour is for the story, Daniel Daniel’s and the World’s Worst Zoo, written by Robbie Yates.

Daniel Daniels spends most of his time doing one of two things:
- Avoiding the school bully, or
- Hanging out with his animal friends.
Unfortunately, Daniel’s animal friends all live at The World’s Worst Zoo, run by the cruel and crabby Mr. Gregory.
One day, an unfortunate incident with some ointment at the zoo leaves Daniel with a few special tricks up his sleeve- tricks that he can use to save the animals, and teach Mr. Gregory a lesson.
Curious, witty and sweet, this adventurous chapter book will charm and thrill the young and the young-at-heart!
Rating: 4 stars
This is a really cute middle grade (or younger) book that I think would be most loved by fellow animal lovers. There is a lot of goofy silliness in the pages that makes it a quick and easy read.
Personally, I am not a huge zoo fan. This is probably partly because I live about 5 minutes from the North Carolina Zoo and have been there a billion times. It’s also because I am not a huge fan of the heat, and of seeing animals out of their natural habitats. BUT, with this being said, I love animals endlessly. Daniel and I really have that one in common! And, to make it all the better, Daniel takes it into his own hands to make sure that these cute little (and big) creatures get better treatment! So Daniel could by my friend any day.
This short chapter book is all about Daniel and getting his furry friends justice. As I certainly prefer in a book, there are also some small plot lines, like Daniel’s life at school and with his peers, that run through the book, making sure that the story isn’t crowded by the zoo. It’s cute and lighthearted, and even those of us who have gone quite beyond this age group can still appreciate a nice middle-grade every now and then, right?
