Lucy has some very unusual neighbours. They have horns, humps, fur, feathers, hooves and claws... they are the animals of a zoo!
Each night, thanks to her friend Georgina the giraffe, who fetches her from her bed, Lucy meets the animals in the zoo and listens to their stories. Nelson the elephant, Molly the hippopotamus, Boris the bear, each one at a time they tell her a story based in their natural habit. There is the one about Snowbert the polar bear who felt a bit too lonely, there is the one about Zed the Zebra who thought he could run faster than everyone, there is the one about Kevin the kind crocodile, or the one about Georgina the giraffe who pretended she was a diva...
From the ice field to the savannah, in each episode, kids discover a new, funny and touching animal!
