This book presents readers with a unique text structure--that of a local newspaper publishing letters to the editor. Members of a local community share their opinions both supporting and opposing expansion and renovation of the local zoo. Through these letters, readers are presented with the pros and cons of the issue of whether zoos should exist or be abolished. Readers can decide for themselves after reading critically.
