The Memphis Zoo.

Novel Memphis

Maggie the rhino knows ALL about sleepovers.

You play your favorite games.

You eat your favorite food.

You stay up all night.

But Maggie doesn’t know all about Daisy the zebra and Inez the oryx, the new-to-the-zoo animals coming for a visit. They don’t look or sound anything like Maggie. Then there’s shouting and stomping, and a sleepover starts to seem impossible! 

Can Maggie figure out what they have in common and save the sleepover or is everyone headed home?

This almost totally true story actually happened at the Memphis Zoo and is a celebration of how we can be entirely different and exactly the same.
