Mitford at the Fashion Zoo by Donald Robertson takes on the fashion world in a place where animals are the creators. Mitford has always wanted to work at Cover Magazine but bombed the job interview. After interviewing 521 candidates Mitford is given another chance and this time with fashion editor Panda Summers. Mitford nails the interview and is Panda’s new assistant but only for a week trial run. Mitford must be quick thinking and creative to make the job permanent. Fun and funky illustrations follow Mitford’s clever thinking to quickly fix problems.
Mitford is a giraffe.
But not your everyday, live-on-the-savannah giraffe.
Mitford lives in the city.
But not your everyday, filled-with-people city.
This city is filled with animals.
Animals who like to dress up,
especially the animals who work at COVER magazine.
Mitford would do ANYTHING to work there.
But first Mitford must prove himself.
Can Mitford survive the Fashion Zoo?!
