The Zoo Monster

 Midge, Jake and Booker-T strolled to the zoo and as they arrived, they saw a truck pull up to the gate. “Hurry,” said Midge as she hurried toward the truck. “Lets go see what they have in the truck.”
Two big men climbed out of the truck and walked to the back. They opened the door to the back of the truck and carefully pulled a huge cage from the back.
“Can you see it Jake?” asked Midge trying to get closer.
“No,” said Jake. “The truck is in the way.”
They walked closer to the building and peeked in between the truck and the gate of the building. In the cage, they saw a big lizard.
“Wow!” said Booker-T. “That is a really big lizard.”
“What kind of lizard is it?” asked Midge.

The Rope

 “Hi Booker-T,” said Midge as she stopped at his gate. “Are you ready to go to Jake's house?”
“Sure,” said Booker-T. “What are you carrying?”
“I have a rope,” said Midge.
“What are you going to do with the rope?” asked Booker-T.
“Do you remember those girls last week in the park?” asked Midge.
“The three in the pond?” asked Booker-T.
“No,” said Midge. “The four girls who were near the pond with a big rope.”
“Oh, yes,” smiled Booker-T. “I remember them. They had a rope and were jumping over the rope.”
“I want to jump the rope,” said Midge.

A New Little Friend

  “Little fishes swimming in the pond,” sang Midge. “Little frogs all around.”
“What are you doing?” asked Booker-T as he walked around to the back yard where he found Midge sitting beside the pond.
“Hi Booker-T,” smiled Midge. “What are you doing?”
“I asked you first,” said Booker-T. “You were singing when I walked back here.”
“Look at my new little friend,” said Midge.
“Where?” asked Booker-T looking around the yard for this new friend. “I don't see a new friend.”
“Right here,” said Midge. “Sitting on the side of the pond.”
“Oh,” said Booker-T. “That's your new friend?”

The Wagon Ride

“Hey Jake!” called Midge as she and Booker-T strolled up the sidewalk to the front porch where Jake was sitting on the swing.
“Hey you two,” said Jake.
“Hi Jake,” said Booker-T.
“Want to go to the big zoo?' laughed Jake.
“Oh no!” said Midge. “Do you really want to go to the big zoo again?”
“No,” said Jake. “I was kidding. I think it is too much trouble trying to go across town.”
“I think you are right,” smiled Midge. “We have a nice little zoo right here we can go see the animals.”
“It was a nice ride to the zoo,” said Booker-T. “But I don't want to get taken to a pound with cages if they catch us. I think it is safer for us to stay here close to home.”
“What do you want to do today?” asked Midge.

The Visit to the Zoo

 The three friends wandered through the zoo. “Hey Jake,” said Midge. “Look at this strange looking animal.”
Jake stood staring at the animal and looked around for the sign that told them what it was. He walked to the sign and stood reading. “It says it is a warthog,” said Jake.
“Warthog?” said Midge.
“That's a funny name,” said Booker-T. “What is a warthog?”
“Does it have a lot of warts?” asked Midge.
“This says he is in the pig family,” said Jake.
“I never saw a pig that looked like him,” said Booker-T. “He looks funny.”
“He sure looks different,” said Midge.
