At this zoo: the toucan tells the anteater which one of them is up and which is down. The flamingo thinks she's nice . . . and that the gorilla is grouchy. And the giraffe peers over the fence to let the penguins know that he's tall and they're short. Sly humor and zany visual make an important point about differences.
