If I Ran the Zoo Images

How It All Goes Down

The First of Many
Seuss gives us the first of many Nerds to come. A touch different than today's nerd.

Is it just us or does McGrew feel a little too colonial in this drawing?

Eerie Iota
The Iota from North Dakota…or was that South Carolina?

Peculiar Petting Zoo
The petting zoo to end all petting zoos. Believe it or not, the proo bites.

Desert Drifter
The chieftain rides the Mulligatwny across the Desert of Zind. In context, that sentence makes sense.

Obsk You Glad We Didn't Say Banana
We bet the Obsk would like our knock-knock joke.
