The Lovereading4Kids comment

Have you ever wanted a pet? How do you find the right one?

An elephant is too heavy, a giraffe is too tall, a frog is too jumpy. Hidden behind a flap, each new arrival that the zoo sends is a wonderful surprise but never quite right. Until, at last, they send the perfect pet.

Dear Zoo is one of the books chosen to be part of the World Book Day Big Little Book Corner, especially aimed at younger children. Four picture book favourites from Rod Campbell have been brought to life as video books with Rod's original illustrations and narrated by the author himself!
