Shortly after World War One, London Zoo became home to a very famous animal. This animal inspired the writing of a very famous author. 


your challenge:

1. find out what the famous animal was

2. find out where it came from and how it ended up in the zoo

3. find out who the famous author was and what books and characters he wrote about


Have fun!
