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 the fifth book in the series, a playful baby elephant arrives at the zoo.
But how can Zoe prevent him from rushing into big trouble.
