When the conductor angrily insists only meerkats are allowed to sing in the choir, many applicants (all animals) are very disappointed. When the meerkats perform though, the conductor is very disappointed by the sound. Meanwhile, all the rejected animals have formed their own choir, which the meerkats join, resulting in a wonderful sound! Underlying this simple picture book is the theme of accepting diversity.
