Zoo Zoom by Candace Ryan

Ill. by Macky Pamintuan. Bloomsbury, 2015. ISBN 9781619633575
(Age: 3+) The animals are off in a rocket to the moon, the monkey, puffin, cockatoo, even the buffalo are ready for a big adventure. The rhyming text questions which tasks need to be undertaken to launch the rocket - using the keys, gear and dials. As the animals are strapped in, even the kiwi, the hippo notices the sleeping rhino has caused a major problem.
Manny Pamintuan's vibrant and lively computer generated scenes filled with the more unusual zoo animals carry the story.
