A quirky, funny read for any young animal lover, from a Whitbread Award-winning author. At Ken's Last Chance Zoo, no animal is ever turned away, no matter how troublesome ...

Head keeper Ken is world-famous for never turning a difficult animal away. Ken's zoo gives a 'last chance', offering a home to all those animals whose misbehaviour or strange habits have led to their exclusion from other zoos. But Ken and his wife adore animals, and have collected a team of keepers who share their passion and their unusual approach to animal care.

However naughty or difficult an animal, Ken's zoo will always give them plenty of care and understanding. Remaining forever calm, Ken is infinitely resourceful with his network of world-wide contacts - and always thrives on a crisis. This time, he's got beavers who won't stop building dams, unruly ostriches, a baby crocodile with teething problems, and a baby giraffe afraid of heights ... And, when the Council decide to close the zoo, there's a dragon at the gates ...
