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

Rod Campbell's lift-the-flap book Dear Zoo has been a firm favourite with toddlers and parents alike ever since it was first published in 1982. This hardback edition of the much-loved preschool classic has a jacket with shiny gold foil and slots neatly into a specially designed gift slipcase.

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?

With bright, bold artwork, a catchy refrain and a whole host of favourite animals, Dear Zoo is a must for every child's bookshelf - and the extra-thick paper, shiny foiled jacket and beautifully designed slipcase make this the perfect birthday, Christening or Christmas present to be treasured for years.
