I thought I was the only one who said Hullabaloo.

Have you ever wondered where the flu came from? Blame little Miss Felicity Floo!

In this funny and very quirky-cool illustrated book by E.S. Redmond, we find that it originated from Felicity Floo (who)Visits the Zoo, all because she “wiped her red, runny nose without a tissue”.  In the book, we follow Felicity as she pets all the animals in the zoo and leaves “behind handprints of green residue”.

All this creates quite a Hullabaloo, spreading the Floo to lions and even “a rare jabiru”.  The hullabaloo, to me, is that Felicity actually gets to pet all the animals and survives. We really enjoyed this book as we found, followed and counted the handprints on the different animals that Felicity petted.

Immediately after we read the book, we had to find all the boxes of tissue in our house.  Great book choice Jackson!
