Sally's Birthday Treat

"Hi, I'm Fred, and it was my sister Sally's birthday, so we were all sitting around wondering what to do to celebrate.

Suddenly the door bell rang and my cousins came in. They had decided to visit us for Sally's birthday, and we all decided to go to the zoo for the day.

We got dressed really quickly and we were off.

First we went to see the monkeys, who were great fun. Jim, my cousin, had a banana, so he gave it to one of the monkeys, and got told off for feeding the animals, which isn't allowed.

Then we went to see the tigers, which are my favourites. I think they are really elegant, the way they walk, and you can see that they could be very dangerous if they escaped.

After lunch, we went to the bird section where an eagle trainer showed us his eagles feeding. It was spectacular. As we came out of that area, we had our photos taken with some parrots, and one of them bit Sally's finger.

She wasn't hurt, but she did get a bit of a fright. We couldn't stop laughing about it for a long time. Even Sally saw the funny side eventually.

We told her it was an extra birthday present."
