If I ran the Zoo – Dr. Seuss is an e-book / audio book and is published by Oceanhouse Media.

Young Gerald, not impressed by the animals at the zoo, conjures up plans for “New Zoo, McGrew Zoo.” Join him on a globe-trotting safari in search of the world’s most unusual creatures (with equally unusual habits). A wonderful tribute to a child’s imagination, this parade of creatures begins with a ten-footed lion and escalates to more and more imaginative (and bizarre) creatures, such as the Fizza-ma-Wizza-ma-Dill, “the world’s biggest bird from the island of Gwark, who eats only pine trees, and spits out the bark.” Come along and discover a zoo like you’ve never imagined, through the eyes of Gerald McGrew and the great Dr. Seuss!

This book gives you the options of reading the book yourself, having the read to you (and you control the page turns) or the complete book read to you automatically.

The book offers the usual tapping on images and words, for the item to be read back to you.

The story is about a young boy and what not so “small” changes he would make to the Zoo.

Dr. Seuss delights as always and if you are a fan of his books, this application is another fine addition to your collection with many creatures to laugh at.

This book is a fun book for both children and adults alike.

The story is well read in audio book mode.

On the upside:

  • Well read.
  • All the usual Dr. Seuss rhymes and wacky animals.
  • Universal for iPad and iPhone.

On the downside:

  • No page selector to jump into the story to your favorite bit of the book.

Overall, this is another excellent book for Oceanhouse Media. The story is sizeable and has a reasonable price for the Dr. Seuss book. For fans of Dr. Seuss this really is a must have as it has dozens of wacky creatures from beginning to end.
