Book Review: Daily Zoo Year 2: Keeping the Doctor at Bay with a Drawing a Day

Daily Zoo Year 2: Keeping the Doctor at Bay with a Drawing a Day

Daily Zoo Year 2 continues where the first has left off. Chris Ayers provides us with yet another year of wonderful characters and reflects on his treatment from leukemia with inspiring stories.

The Daily Zoo is fun with its humorous and oftentimes whimsical illustrations. It is in many ways better than a real zoo. Where else can you see stuff like Bridezilla, Unicycling Uakari, Badass-ilisk, Saggy Bunnies, a few dinosaurs, aliens or even a carnivorous Christmas tree? There is no lack of surprises from cover to cover.

Chris Ayers gives his animals so much character you'll feel you know them from somewhere. The drawings are beautiful and detailed, especially the textures on the animals. He also shares lots of tips on character design.

This book is filled with creativity and it's such an inspiring read. It also comes with a bookmark and postcard.

Very highly recommended. I hope there another year coming.
