Product description

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

    Dear Zoo

    I used to read this to my daughter when she was 2-3, it was a great little book which she could get involved with by opening the flaps and making the noises when seeing the pictures.

    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.
