I know that I want to have a story including mainly animals, and so I am going to use the idea of an animal escaping from their cage in the zoo. I thought a good place to start would be to look at news articles of if this has happened before. I came across some very interesting stories of various animals making a break from the zoo, and also what they did while they were free.
I will be adapting my chosen story to be more suited to children of my chosen age range. These are the best stories which I have come across so far:
My favourite ones are:
Rusty the Red Panda –
And Capone the Rhesus Monkey –
I feel as thought this is a good starting point for my story, but I need to plan out and decide which animal to go with and then finalise the story, ready for me to then begin the illustrations.
