Description

Lift the flaps and join in the fun with Rod Campbell's classic, Dear Zoo, with a host of favourite zoo animals and sturdy card flaps to lift on every page.

'I wrote to the zoo to send me a pet . . .'

Young children will love lifting the flaps to discover the animals the zoo has sent - a monkey, a lion and even an elephant! But will they ever manage to send the perfect pet?

Rod Campbell, the creator of preschool favourites including Oh Dear! and Fluffy Chick, has been a trusted name in early learning for nearly forty years, and the perennial classic, Dear Zoo has been a firm favourite with toddlers and parents alike since its first publication in 1982.

With bright, bold artwork, and a repeating text, Dear Zoo is a must for every child's bookshelf - and the thick card pages, chunky cased cover, and sturdy flaps make it perfect for small hands.

Look out for Rod Campbell's Look After Us, a lift-the-flap animal book for toddlers with a positive message about conservation.
