ANIMAL STRIKE AT THE ZOO. IT'S TRUE! by Karma Wilson ... A rhyming charmer about zoo animals going on strike. It all starts when the elephants complain, We're paid only peanuts! All of the other animals follow suit. Then all is chaos as the zookeeper tries to pacify the animals, and there appears to be no end in sight until a first-time visitor bursts into tears. It is only then, in a loud hush, that it becomes apparent to the animals just how important their job really is.
