But, one day, a shiny, bobble-headed new rival comes in and ruins everything…a giraffe-shaped balloon! Just how far will Leopold go to prove that he’s the hero of the zoo? Readers learn that actions speak far louder than looks in this laugh-out-loud face-off from Elise Parsley–the New York Times bestselling creator of the Magnolia Says DON’T! series.

Praise

"Parsley's...tale deals with some serious issues that are treated comically. ...A lighthearted foray into the difficulties of zoo life and--more to the point--peer behavior."
Kirkus Reviews
"Hilarious...a laugh on each spread. And readers will cheer on Leopold as he opts to take the high road--and ends up on top."—Publishers Weekly
