Phyllis Newman Set for Books of Wonder Appearance for What's New At The Zoo?
The book features the lyrics to the song "What's New At The Zoo?" from the Betty Comden/Adolph Green musical, Do Re Mi. Both song and book tell the tale of an overcrowded zoo and the amazingly witty animals who want OUT! Illustrations are by Foster.
Newman, who was married to Green, won a 1962 Tony Award for Subways Are for Sleeping, and also received a special 2009 Tony.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the book will go to the Phyllis Newman Women's Health Initiative.
