Mr. Wacka Backa Boo the Keeper of the Zoo

MR. WACKA BACKA BOO: The Keeper of The Zoo Mr. Wacka Backa Boo is an eccentric zoo keeper who challenges the status quo.  His hybrid animal creations are quite beautiful and make for interesting combinations that children will love.  But, in the end, he learns that there is an order to nature and that the beauty we see around us is already perfect. CAROL CARLISLE Carol Carlisle always wanted to write stories.  Many of her stories are not in print, but are imprinted LISLE Carol Carlisle always wanted to write stories.  Many of her stories are not in print, but are imprinted on the minds and hearts of her children and grandchildren. Carol’s stories have been told to her children and, now her grandchildren, as a means to ease restless children into peaceful slumber at the end of a long day.  Mr. Wacka Backa Boo is a favorite, for in their slumber, the children have dreamed of real-life encounters with the animals.  Bohemia the leopard, Bumps the turtle, Skiger and other imaginary zoo animals often find their way into the youngsters’ bedrooms to be fed and snuggled before being sent back to the zoo.  And, as storytellers, Carol’s grandchildren excel as they describe, with great embellishment, these fantastic encounters. Enjoy the book.  But, most of all, enjoy the experience of reading it to a child you love. The art work for this book is the creation of three generations of incredible artists:  Barbara Massey, Brenda Cagle Snow, and Anna Snow Nelson.  These soulful and spirited women see beauty in everything and have taught many others to do the same. read more
