Told in just a few words per page, this book tells the story of a little girl who doesn’t have a family. At the orphanage she is lonely and has no friends. Then the children visit the zoo and suddenly the little girl feels at home. She is left behind at the zoo and the animals discover her. They befriend her and she lives with them for awhile until the zookeepers discover her curled up with the tigers. The little girl does not want to go, and the book ends with a happy ending where the little girl is adopted by the zookeeper couple. The story is a simple one, told in only a few words, but the sense of belonging and being wanted remains a powerful message.
