The Great Zoo Escape “I promised we would escape,” the old ostrich told her flock.
A younger ostrich said, “Yahoo, no more zoo!”
Each creature looked happy. The animals had run away on tiptoe past the zoo patrol.
“We’re free!” two donkeys shouted.
“But I’m hungry,” one of the amphibians said.
“Who will feed us?”
The animals looked at each other.
“I’m tired,” said the mare, “and I miss my bed.”
Nobody knew what to say.

“Now, shall we tiptoe back inside?”
The animals cheered and shouted,
“Let’s go home!”
