In her bedroom wall, Sylvie spots a door ... and beyond that door she finds a passage ... and beyond the passage she discovers ... the ZOO! Where Sylvie finds LOTS of animals, looking at her! So she decides to bring a few small ones, 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 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 adventure that encapsulates brilliantly every child's wildest fantasy - a door in their own bedroom ... that leads to the zoo!"@en ;
