Hi! I'm Juliet. I'm ten years old. And I'm nearly a vet! I've won a competition to be a zookeeper for a day! My best friend Chelsea is coming too. I can't wait to learn all about the zoo animals. There will be meerkats, tigers and penguins to feed. And maybe some zoo vets who need some help (I must remember my vet-kit!). Most exciting of all, there's a baby elephant due to be born!
