What is the perfect pet? The zoo keeps sending all kinds of animals but, lift the flap and readers will see they are too big, too tall, too jumpy, too grumpy or too scary. Sadly, each of them is returned. Finally, the zoo sends the perfect pet and everyone is happy!


The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. 'I wrote to the zoo to send me a pet. so they sent me a . . .' Lift the flap to discover the big elephant, the fierce lion, the grumpy camel (all returned) - and finally a puppy.
