facebook_2What would happen if a wild animal came to stay? How would you look after it? Where would it sleep? There’s no need to wonder any longer as curious little minds can now learn all about animals and the importance of protecting them in four fantastic fact-filled ZSL London Zoo Me Books. Wild Things! titles will now sit alongside Peter Rabbit, Topsy & Tim and Peppa Pig along with more than 130 of the best loved children’s books currently available in the Me Books Shop.

Boing! Leaping lions! Look how well they can jump: ‘Lion who came to lunch’ is packed full of amazing facts for little lion lovers to enjoy and explore. Did you know they can eat the same as 240 burgers in one go? With ‘cool creatures’ facts and ‘rrroooaaars’ galore, this is one Me Book that can’t be tamed …

Cool! When it gets hot, hippos need to chill!: ‘Hippo in the house’ explores the wonderful world of pygmy hippos, bringing these magnificent creatures to life through a series of bite size facts and delightful hippo facts.

Yikes! Watch out for kicking feet – they’re huge and they hurt: ‘Giraffe on a sleepover’ answers all your giraffe related questions and more – learn why challenging one to a karate kick off would be a bad idea!

Zoom! Emus can’t fly but they are super-speedy: ‘Emu on the loose’ gives these popular animals the ZSL London Zoo treatment … did you know they just can’t resist a bit of bling?

With all four titles available on offer at £1.49 each from the Me Books Shop, there’s no excuse not to find out more about these amazing animals.

James Huggins, MD of Me Books said: ‘It’s no surprise that the result of a partnership between ZSL London Zoo and Bloomsbury Publishing had spectacular results. The Wild Things! collection is a charming and hilarious way to learn about animals and all four titles are just perfect as Me Books. This is by far the best and funniest way to learn interesting facts about our friends in the animal kingdom.’

Saskia Gwinn, Senior Commissioning Editor, Children’s Non-fiction Bloomsbury said: ‘We are absolutely delighted to see this brilliant ZSL London Zoo series take off in such spectacular digital fashion through this partnership with Me Books. Wild Things! will have children laughing all the way to the end of the series with funny animal facts provided by ZSL London Zoo’s very own expert zookeepers and sound effects that every parent and child will have fun trying to replicate.’

Emma Edwards, Head of Communications for ZSL London Zoo said: ‘We’re thrilled to be working with Me Books and Bloomsbury Publishing on the app version of the ZSL London Zoo Wild Things! titles. The zookeeper approved fact-filled stories are great for fun and learning and will provide hours of entertainment for all the family.’

Lion, Hippo, Giraffe and Emu are all available via the Me Books Shop. To access the whole series, please search: ‘ZSL’ in the Me Books Shop:

About Me Books:

Bursting with classics
With more than 130 of the best loved children’s books currently on our shelves and new titles being added each week, Me Books is bursting with classics from Beatrix Potter’s Peter Rabbit and vintage Ladybird fairy tales to modern favourites Elmer, Topsy & Tim and Peppa Pig.

Read. Listen. Record. Save.
Simple, fun and interactive, Me Books enhance the reading experience through an original and clever use of audio. Using our super duper patented ‘draw and record’ technology children can personalise and interact with their Me Books. By tracing an area on the screen, then pressing and holding it down to record, readers can capture their own sounds and voices and save them as interactive ‘hotspots.’ Just in case there’s more than one natural performer in the family, it’s possible to save up to three versions of each Me Book to treasure forever

Famous storytellers
Genius narration and comedy gold from the likes of Richard E. Grant, Sir David Jason, Rik Mayall, Tamsin Greig, Adam Buxton and Josie Lawrence adds a boatload of charm and giggles to Me Books.

Exclusive content
We haven’t altered or added anything to the original print, only sprinkled on some ‘Me Books Magic.’ Me Books not only excites young readers; it has also inspired best-selling authors to revisit their work and write additional lines for characters. Prick up your ears and relish brand new material written and performed exclusively for Me Books.
