YES.

Words by

Giulia Brugliera
Oh my goodness. If there is a child in your life, go gift this to them stat. Mitford at the Fashion Zoo is the best.
 
It’s a kids’ book set in the Vogue office during New York Fashion Week, where they all say phrases like ‘it’s BEYOND’ and everyone is an animal.  
 
There’s Shark Jacobs and Mikael Boars and a panda with a Wintour-like bob that wears ‘Super Silly Inside Glasses.’ YES.
 
Mitford gets the job because she sniffs at an editorial and has ‘legs for days.’ She also coaches Mikael Boars through a crisis in which ‘he lay down on his runway and wanted to die.’
 
This is the definition of quality reading.
