Dora and Boots enter an Alphabet Book, and except for Armadillo, see all the others animals (from A to Z) are missing.


Dora & Boots enter the ABC book. They find an armadillo on the "A" page. Armadillo explains to Dora & Boots that all the animals aren't in their corresponding letter pages. It was mystery. So, Dora & Boots go on a quest to locate the missing animals. There was no ant at the letter "A". There was no bear missing at "B". They also find a cat missing at "C", a dog at "D", an elephant at "E", a frog at "F", a giraffe at "G", a horse at "H", an iguana at "I", a jaguar at "J", a kangaroo at "K", a lion at "L", a mouse at "M", a nightingale at "N", an octopus at "O", a pig at "P", a quetzal at "Q", a rhinoceros at "R", a snake at "S", a turtle at "T", an umbrella bird at "U", a vulture at "V", a whale at "W", an X-Ray fish at "X", a yak at "Y" and a zebra at "Z". Dora, Boots & Armadillo fly an airplane from A thru E. They ride in a fire-truck at "F" all the way to "I". They fly a kite from J thru O. They ride on a train at "T" all the way to "Z". All the animals were in the "Z" shaped zipper. Dora & Boots unzip the zipper and all the animals came out. All the animals got together at the letter "Z" because they were throwing a party for Armadillo.
