Book 3: Travels with Zozo…on the Reef

Imagine if our pets could travel the world with us.

What adventures would they have? What trouble would they get into? What friends would they make?

In the Travels with Zozo... series of illustrated children’s books for ages 4-8 years old, a fun-loving family of four brings their pet bunny, Zozo, on their trips around the world, and Zozo’s escapades are bound to amaze, amuse, and inspire you.

Author A.J. Atlas’ extensive travel experiences in nearly fifty countries and throughout all fifty U.S. states provide firsthand insight into the settings for the books. Award-winning illustrator Anne Zimanski uses bright colors and expert digital artistry to turn the real-life places into beautifully colorful, imaginative worlds for Zozo and readers to explore. She adds an abundance of charm and heart to the culturally-diverse characters whom Zozo meets, and she packs Zozo’s sweet, little, furry face full of emotion. Then, together, Atlas and Zimanski keep the pages filled with goofy gags and funny antics. So many, in fact, that rereading the stories is sure to surprise you with something new and keep you laughing.

The third book in the exciting, new series, Travels with Zozo...on the Reef, takes readers to the world’s largest coral reef, Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. The brilliantly blue waters teeming with fish of all shapes and colors set a vibrant scene for Zozo’s underwater journey.

After helicopter and boat rides over the majestic reef, a dream sequence takes Zozo swimming underwater and riding on a giant spotted eagle ray to watch a race between whales, sharks, and other large fish in the reef.

Zozo’s adventure brings her up close to the whimsically illustrated reef residents— goofy, golfing crabs, a sea star doing standup comedy, cheering seahorses, sail- fish, parrot fish, and a multitude of other fish. The sea life adds depth and rich- ness (and laughs!) to the beautiful watery landscape showcased in this premium full-color 32-page book.

Children and grownups alike are sure to fall in love with the “hoppity, floppity, hug- gable, snuggable” pet bunny, Zozo, in this beautifully-illustrated, pint-sized tropical travel log. They will be amazed by the detailed illustrations of actual plants, ani- mals, and landscapes of Australia while laughing at the goofy goings-on in every corner of the pages.

Bring your imagination and let Zozo be your guide to a world of amazing places!
