      'I wrote to the zoo to send me a pet' Rod Campbell's classic lift-the-flap book Dear Zoo has been a firm favourite with toddlers and parents alike ever since it was first published in The doorbell rings, and the Young Man enters. Grandma looks him over approvingly and compliments his looks: his face is "almost insultingly good- looking in a typically American way". Indeed, as he himself notes, he his a "type". Grandma announces the boy as the American Dream.

    The American Dream was the fourth play written by Albee. It received its American premiere at the York Playhouse on Janu , and ran for performances. Four of the five characters in. The Zoo Story is awesome because it shows us why we probably don't want to be in that first group. In the play, Peter and Jerry represent the two different types of people.

    The Zoo Story Summary. The Zoo Story is short, and not much happens. It is not super-plotty; in fact, it is the opposite of super-plotty. We don't want to burst your bubble, but it's not going to be turned into a blockbuster film with explosions and alien invasions or anything like that though there are some thrilling dog reaction shots, so it's not a total loss. Read a Plot Overview of the entire play or a scene by scene Summary and Analysis. See a complete list of the characters in American Dream and in-depth analyses of Grandma, Mommy, Daddy, and The Young Man.
