...by Benjamin Mee. It must be a good book because I read it cover to cover on Sunday in between seeing to Michaela!

It's really different. I love animals and zoos anyway so it was always going to interest me. But it's also a story about the guy growing as a person through some really tough times, as well as about the zoo. It's a true story set in Devon in England, and I think it's really well written. I'd recommend it, anyway.

Has anyone seen the film with Leo diCaprio? I fancy seeing it now.

I do have a bit of a habit of doing that Jess unless the book is really pants. Could just be me!

I didn't realise the movie was based on a book either until I saw it in a charity shop, it only cost me 1.

I used to be able to do that!!!! I remember one March Break, I read 35 books. An average of 4/day (including weekends). I think I was about 9 or 10? Crazy!

lol Jess, I must have read a LOT of books between the ages of around 9 and 11. It's what I spent practically ALL my free time doing.
