Lucy has some very strange neighbors with horns, humps, tails, and trunks. That's because Lucy lives next door to the zoo! Every night, she climbs down the long neck of Georgina the Giraffe and listens to one of them tell her a story. Tonight it's the story of Zed the Zebra. Zed is faster than any other animal in the jungle—and he's always pointing it out. He is very proud of his go-faster stripes and claims he is the fastest runner in all Africa. But one day the animals plan an obstacle race and prove they can all do something well. Suddenly Zed isn't the best at everything!
