Dear Zoo (Board Book)

An elephant? Too big! A lion? Too fierce! Will this kid ever find the perfect pet? When a child writes a letter to the zoo, asking for help to choose a pet, the staff send out all sorts of exotic animals. Can you guess which creature is hiding in each box? Peek beneath the flaps to see! The only trouble is, none of them are quite right as pets – until the very last page!

  • A flip-flap favourite in a durable board edition
  • A true childhood classic, loved for over 35 years
  • Ingeniously simple yet full of exciting surprises
  • Fun flaps, vibrant artwork and a catchy refrain
