The Zoo Box

zooboxWritten by Ariel Cohn, Illustrated by Aron Nels Steinke

Erika and Patrick are left for the evening by themselves. If they can behave, a trip to the zoo will be their reward. As soon as their parents leave, they go to the attic to play dress-up with animal costumes. In the attic they find a box that is labeled “Do Not Open.” Patrick opens the box and an ostrich comes out. They decide to open the box again and a whole zoo comes out. Erika and Patrick follow the animals and end up at the zoo. However, it is not the zoo they know and love. What do they do?
