The Lovereading4Kids comment
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! With bright, bold artwork, a catchy refrain and a whole host of favourite animals, Dear Zoo is a must for every child's bookshelf. This special 35th anniversary edition is beautifully presented with extra-thick paper, shiny foiled jacket and a beautifully designed slipcase and would make a wonderful gift addition to any book collection. ~ Julia Eccleshare
