Welcome to the Zoo School-where students have zookeepers for teachers and animals for textbooks! Ursula, Kitty, Robin, Leo, and Drake have just entered this very strange school, and right away they know something fishy is going on. The desks have animals in them, the cupboards are filled with animal food, and the classroom smells like, well . . . a zoo. Ew! Plus the teachers are batty, the lessons are loony, and the principal is missing. This school is ridiculous! But when the New School Inspectors threaten to close it down, the students have to decide for themselves whether this zooey school is worth saving. And, if so, they'll have to figure out a way to do it.
