Zoo Girl

Publisher: Lion Hudson

A little girl with neither family nor friends lives in a children’s home. One day she is taken to the zoo. She feels at home among the animals and isn’t disturbed when her bus leaves her behind at the zoo. The zoo animals adopt her – at last she has friends. She is overjoyed to live wild with them, swimming with penguins and tussling with the polar bear.

One day two zoo keepers discover her, curled up, asleep, with a tiger. She doesn’t want to leave the zoo and fortunately she is adopted by the keepers. Now she has both friends and family.

A heart-warming tale told with just twenty words and very effective illustration. Ideal for classroom use.
