Mr. Merry's Zoo     /p9

The storekeeper wrapped the lamp in brown paper and the animals started off with their gift.

When Mr. Merry came home that night his animals were waiting for him. "Surprise, surprise," they said in chorus. "Here is a present for you. We are celebrating your forty years at the zoo."

The happy zookeeper unwrapped his gift. "Oh, thank you, my friends," he exclaimed! I think this is wonderful!
