As described by DreamWorks, "Alex the lion [Ryann Reich of Edgewood, Md.], is the king of the urban jungle, the main attraction at New York's Central Park Zoo. He and his best friends - Marty the zebra [Grace Glennon of Towson, Md.], Melman the giraffe [Jules Einhorn of Baltimore, Md.] and Gloria the hippo [Emily Ricci of Nottingham, Md.] - have spent their whole lives in blissful captivity before an admiring public and with regular meals provided for them. Not content to leave well enough alone, Marty lets his curiosity get the better of him and makes his escape - with the help of some prodigious penguins - to explore the world.

Follow all of your favorite crack-a-lackin' friends as they escape from their home in New York's Central Park Zoo and find themselves on an unexpected journey to the madcap world of King Julien's [Sarah Ward of Perry Hall, Md.] Madagascar."
