Cutesy, Blinky and Bob live in the zoo. But does anyone pay attention to them? No! All the zoo-goers are too busy gawking at gorillas, clicking cameras at the koalas, even staring at the sloth! That is, until these chipmunks concoct a full-on campaign to become the most popular animals in the zoo. But it won't be easy. No matter what our heroes try, it's hard to upstage exotic creatures like zebras and wallabies and poison dart frogs. And when this fame-hungry trio finally achieves the stardom they've been dreaming of, they may discover it's not all it was cracked up to be. Oh nuts!

Rising stars Tammi Sauer and Dan Krall have crafted a hilarious picture book for little attention seekers everywhere - and the zookeepers who love them.

Booklist Review: "Pity those poor chipmunks at the zoo, constantly upstaged by exotic animals (even by the possum who just plays dead!). So Cutesy, Blinky, and Bob embark upon a mission to get attention. Their antics, depicted in eye-popping digital art by Krall, are clever, resourceful, and increasingly desperate. First, the chipmunks show off their running-through-grass and darting-up-trees skills. No reaction from the zoo-goers? Next, the trio give themselves makeovers with stuff from the lost and found. After that they try rocking out on the gift-shop roof. Finally, out of desperation, they do what they do best: chew grass, flick away bugs, and lie around and the always fickle crowd goes wild. The zany, off-the-wall look of modern Disney movies will reel in the kids, so they won't even notice the sweet message about self-acceptance.--Fletcher, Connie Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Sauer (Me Want Pet!) and Krall (Absolutely Beastly Children) hang their story of three big-cheeked chipmunks on a longstanding truism about the zoo: most of the time, the animals aren't doing anything interesting. Cutesy, Blinky, and Bob envy the (undeserved) attention given to their fellow zoo animals, and "when the sloth got groupies," enough is enough; they come up with one attention-getting plan after another. Sauer uses the chipmunks' interests as the basis of their efforts: feminine Cutesy suggests that they give themselves makeovers (they dress up as other, more popular animals), and music-minded Blinky proposes a rock concert. Nothing works. An over-the-top sense of humor prevails, driven by Krall's exaggerated and almost gruesome cartoons. The dead eyes of giraffes and zebras contrast comically with the humans' excited reactions to them, and when lazy, obese Bob gets his "If you can't beat 'em..." brainstorm, it's portrayed as a "miracle," complete with rainbow and beam of light from the heavens. After all the chipmunks' planning, the denouement comes across as too quick and easy. Ages 3-6. Agent: Laura Rennert, Andrea Brown Literary Agency. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
