When Great-Uncle Horace brings back lost and homeless animals from his travels around the globe, it falls to Zoe, and her mum, the zoo vet, to settle them into their new home. She's good at this, because she can understand what they say and talk to them, too. But that's a secret! In this first book, a tiny lion cub comes to stay at the zoo and Zoe must ask Leonard, the grumpy old lion, for his help - "Just as Zoe was about to burst with excitement, Great-Uncle Horace began to cut away the thick ropes fastening the crate. Meep jumped up on Zoe's head to try and get a better view. What could the new animal be? The wooden sides of the crate clattered to the ground, and the crowd gasped. Zoe's heart leapt. Inside the crate was a furry little animal with rounded ears, chocolate-brown eyes and a long curving yellow tail with a brown tuft on the end. It was a tiny, fluffy, completely gorgeous baby lion cub!"
