- Book Intro
There is a special zoo at Sani (main character)'s house. A penguin is standing straight up on the balcony to breathe in the fresh air, a panda is eating pages from the middle section of a thick book, and a white bear is lying down on the tile floor at the front door. How did these animals end up at Sani's house?
The author, Park Juhye, also included an anecdote about her companion animal and special rabbit friend, Ddongkkangi, in A Special Zoo, just as she did previously in Backpack Rabbit. The story is depicted charmingly by illustrator Seo Jihyun, whose drawings are like animation. She left hints of the "special animal" here are there in the scenes, adding a fun search feature for readers. Now, let's all go to Sani's place!
