The Midnight Zoo, by Sonya Hartnett. This book takes place during World War II. It is a book about two brothers and their baby sister. who find a mysterious zoo. This zoo contains animals who can talk. Each animal tells the boys about how they got there and what happened along the way. Some of the animals include a wolf, lioness and monkey. These two boys parents were taken away from them by the german soldiers. The boys and their sister have been running all over Europe trying not to get caught by the Germans... All the animals in the zoo want to get out because they've been there for so long with really no food or water and nothing to do besides talk to each other and sit in their cages. This book is for 6th graders and older because it involves some shooting and some scary moments. I like this book and I would give it a 8 and a half star rating out of ten. I enjoyed it and I can see many people enjoying it too.
