  • I wrote to the zoo to send me a pet. They sent me an elephant… He was too big so I sent him back!
  • I wrote to the zoo to send me a pet. They sent me a tiger… He had too many stripes so I sent him back!
  • I wrote to the zoo to send me a pet. They sent me a monkey… He was too jumpy so I sent him back!
  • I wrote to the zoo to send me a pet. They sent me a bear… He was too furry so I sent him back!
