Hulluba Zoo

I wrote this book of children's poetry in twelfth grade Writer's Craft called "HULLABA ZOO", and i thought it would be kinda cool to rework some of the drawings I had in that book.

HULLABA ZOO was the title of the first poem, and it was about a crazy zoo where all the animals were mixed breeds.

Voici le LION-SKUNK. He was one of the first animals I drew. I'm thinking about reworking all of the animals because they're all really fun. 

by Janine Antolin

Dragon-bear, Rooster-fish, Manatee-roo
These are the animals in Hullaba Zoo

Monkey-rat, Rabbit-bat, Ostrich-Emu
Every kid wants to see Hullaba Zoo

Dragon-whale, Squirrel-quail, Peguin-mouse too
It's fun to be visiting Hullaba Zoo

Lion-skunk, Panda-ram, Horse-cow that's blue
Please don't feed creatures in Hullaba Zoo

Tiger-duck, Eagle-minx...
...I'm warning you....
You're making a ruckus in Hullaba Zoo


Leopard-shrimp, Sparrow-wolf
...We bid you adieu,
We're closing down our magical Hulluba Zoo

Gorrilla-snake, Ferret-cat...
...We never knew 
That creatures were hungry in Hullaba Zoo
