Gracie Lou Wants A Zoo

Shelly Roark (Author) Simone Krüger (Illustrator)


What kid wouldn't want her own personal zoo?

Gracie Lou wants nothing more for her pet turtle, George, than for him to have friends. But Mom and Dad insist that their city apartment is too small to house a monkey, or a duck, or a giraffe, or an elephant. They say she needs to be patient and trust in God's plan, except Gracie Lou's not sure she can wait that long.

After a wild night spent with a houseful of rowdy zoo animals give her a lesson in the value of patience and God's perfect timing, Gracie Lou learns that God has a great plan for her . . . if she can just wait for it!

Written by Shelly Roark, award-winning author of The Bubble Who Would Not POP!, Gracie Lou Wants A Zoo is a delightful message of God's love for all of His children, especially those who have ever wondered about His plan for them.

About the Author

Shelly Roark wanted to grow up and become Wonder Woman. When that didn't pan out, writing stories became her passion, and her career in journalism found her writing for newspapers and non-profits, like Focus on the Family, American Bible Society, and World Help. She's the wife of a high school history teacher and mom to three teens, but she's also been a clown, a ventriloquist, and a puppeteer. The Bubble Who Would Not POP! is her debut children's picture book.
Simone Krüger is a German-based illustrator, who made the leap into full-time illustrating at the start of 2017 and couldn't be happier! She's a proud nerd, who loves video games and reading comics. She also loves being out and about in the countryside, discovering nature and new creatures to draw. However, her biggest passion is creating beautiful artwork for inspiring projects.
