What Kind of Book is The Desperate Adventures of Zeno and Alya

What Questions Should I Ask My Child

  • Zeno has a few instances where he isn’t treated so well as a pet, and other times when he’s treated fantastically. You might want to have a discussion about pet and animal treatment with your child.
  • Ask your child how different characters helped one another by focusing on someone besides themselves (Zeno helps Alya, Alya’s brother helps her, Alya helps Zeno) and encourage them to find a way to help someone today.
