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 a mystery. So, Dora, Boots, and Armadillo go on a quest to locate the missing animals. There was an ant missing at the letter "A". There was a bear missing at "B". They also find a cat missing at "C", a dog missing at "D", an elephant missing at "E", a frog missing at "F", a giraffe missing at "G", a horse missing at "H", an iguana missing at "I", a jaguar missing at "J", a kangaroo missing at "K", a lion missing at "L", a mouse missing at "M", a nightingale missing at "N", an octopus missing at "O", a pig missing at "P", a quetzal missing at "Q", a rhinoceros missing at "R", a snake missing at "S", a turtle missing at "T", an umbrella bird missing at "U", a vulture missing at "V", a whale missing at "W", an X-Ray fish missing at "X", a yak missing at "Y" and a zebra missing 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" to throw a surprise party (La fiesta sorpresa) for Armadillo.
