Ziggy and the Black Dinosaurs: Backyard Animal Show
Sharon M. Draper

Ziggy, Rashawn, Jerome, and Rico are excited about watching the heavy machinery at the construction site for a new apartment complex -- until a doe is killed by a dump truck, and the boys rescue her orphaned fawn. Suddenly they realize what the destruction of their habitat means to the animals in the area. So they decide to stage a neighborhood animal show to raise money for the local wildlife rescue center, with the adorable fawn they've named Dino as the star attraction. After all, they've managed round-the-clock feedings and cleaning up after Dino; how much trouble can their friends' cats, dogs, and hamsters be?
