Dear Zoo (Board Book)

An elephant? Too big! A lion? Too fierce! Will you ever find the perfect pet? A letter to the zoo results in all sorts of exotic animals being dispatched. But none of them are quite right – until the last page! Can you guess which creature is hiding in each box? Peek beneath the flaps to see! A classic flip-flap favourite in a sturdy board edition, full of wild surprises and roaring, squeaking, grunting noises to make.

    I have read this book many times to my little cousin as she really enjoys it. It is really interesting with the hide out pictures as it is fun to see who it is.

    I would rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.

    Liked this flap book when I was younger. Still remember the different animals in it. Great book for 2 year olds. Watch out for the grumpy camel.
