Zoe, Zack n Zzzork by John Zorack, 1991 first edition.


Written by John L Zorack. Illustrated by Nip Rogers. First edition, 1991. Author signed. Zzz Books, publishers.

A brother and sister, Zoe and Zack, want to save the world. Land, sea, and skies and all the life on Earth. But how? They dream of a robot big and smart enough to do the job: Zzzork.

"We love to fish when the water's free of oil and the world's debris.
We love to swim when the water's clean and drink from an unpolluted stream
and see our reflections in a pool that sparkles like a diamond jewel.
There is a way to protect our water and air, there is a way to make people care.
There is a way to protect our fish, fowl, and four-legged friends, to stop pollution and make amends.
If we could make a wish, we'd wish away all the rubbish.
And wish for a robot friend who could put an end to the world's pollution,
who could find a solution for all that's gone wrong.
If they had such a friend, so very big and strong, they'd find a way to save the world.
They'd do it the right way!"

John L Zorack (1925 - 2018) was a classic Renaissance Man, serving as a Marine Corps legal officer during WWII and Vietnam, and as a government lobbyist. He wrote Zoe, Zack n Zzzork in support of the World Wildlife Fund.
