The Midnight Zoo

Sonya Hartnett

Two gypsy boys are fleeing through a war-ravaged country-side during the night carrying a secret bundle. The boys stumble across a town that has been reduced to smoking rubble, and a zoo that is still intact. When the boys take shelter in the zoo, they discover a menagerie of talking animals. Both the boys and the animals tell their tales and speak of their desire for freedom.

Like The Silver Donkey and The Ghost’s Child, this is another beautifully fable-like tale that will move you to tears. It’s a story that will appeal to all ages, that merges history with fantasy, adults will enjoy this as much as children.
