THE ELLA ZOO
written by Elizabeth Dimmette Coyne, Illustrated by Valentina Felce
With a clever name game and adorable illustrations, The Ella Zoo gives every impression it is a children’s book — and it is, but so much more! Track a whole zoo of endearing animals such as Koella Bear, Ellagator, Nightingella and Ellaphant as Ella grows from infant into young woman to arrive at the central theme of this endearing collection of poetry — nothing less than the greatest love story of all time — a parent’s love for their child. Suitable for readers of any age, whether 5 or 75, The Ella Zoo presents poetry to be savored and shared with those you love.
You can find The Ella Zoo in Winston Salem, NC at Sawtooth School for Visual Arts Gallery, the New Winston Museum, Twin City Hive, Camel City News; in Greensboro at Scuppernong Books and of course, wherever S2dio Supplies' mobile store, VanGo, is parked locally.
