Kathy Sattem Ryggabout this book: Animal Andy is about a zoo keeper's son who discovers a magical antique animal carousel and must use it to save the zoo and its animals. This story is a whimsical adventure that will capture any young reader's imagination (children ages 7-10). Each time Andy rides the "Magical Menagerie" carousel, he is transformed into a different animal and is thrown into their world. But when an elephant attacks a keeper and the zoo's fate is on the line, Andy must rely on his human instincts—that inner voice that tells him when to act—rather than the carousel's magic. This book is full of fun animal anecdotes based on real animal stories from one of the country's top zoos. Kids will love the adventure, the animal characters, and root for the hero of the story.
