The Coldest Day at The Zoo

by Alan Rusbridger

Slap bang in the middle of the coldest day of the year, the heating has broken down and all the animals are freezing (apart from the polar bear). So, Mr Pickles, the zoo director, asks the keepers to take their animal home for the weekend to keep them warm.

What could possibly go wrong?
