Itchy Coo is a publishing company dedicated to producing original books in Scots for children and young people, including translations into Scots of classics by Stevenson, Dahl and A A Milne. Katie’s Zoo is the sixth in the series which started with Katie’s Coo, a collection of favourite and lesser known traditional rhymes. Like its predecessors, this new title is a robust board book with a simple story and refrain in large, plain print against lively double spread illustrations of Katie’s adventures. The colours and shapes are bright and flat, but achieve mosaic-like complexity, particularly in the depiction of the chameleon that Katie encounters in her search for her favourite animal. The search ends with a twist which should please the younger readers who have been following the guessing game embodied in the story.
