Mitford at the Hollywood Zoo
Viking, 2017 (2017)
Reviewed by Hilary Williamson
itford (a giraffe, hence very tall) works as a fashion assistant at Cover magazine and loves his job. One day, his boss alerts him to a looming '
' and sends him to L.A. to fix it.
elebrity singer Rhinona (a rhino, what else?) has just ruined her cotton-candy dress and urgently needs a new one for the Academy Zoowards. Mitford's solution is a delightful one!
e continues to correct fashion foul-ups - for Meryl Sheep and Shark Whaleberg - and finally sorts out a tux for his own appearance at the Zoowards.
t's all a lot of fun for young fashionistas, but some of the references (like the '
latte at Tar Ducks
') are probably there for the older readers looking over their shoulders.
