Maggie the rhino knows all about sleepovers! However, she doesn’t know anything about the new zoo animals, Daisy the zebra and Inez the oryx. These new animals aren’t anything like Maggie! Will they be able to get along? This endearing children’s story is a celebration of how we can be entirely different and yet find similarities in each other to become best pals. Author, Amy Sharp, elegantly paints the picture of what truly happened here at the zoo. In the zoo’s effort to mimic life in the wild, rhinos, zebras, and oryx were introduced into the same exhibit in the African Veldt. These very different animals now live in perfect harmony together every day. Join these animals of the African Veldt in an almost totally true story about an impossible sleepover and visit these characters daily at the Memphis Zoo!
