'I wrote to the zoo to send me a pet . . .' Rod Campbell's classic 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 pop-up edition of the story is packed full of exciting surprises and retains all the charm of the original. Lift the flaps on every page of The Pop-Up Dear Zoo to discover what the zoo has sent and see all your favourite animals spring to life! You can find a very tall giraffe, a fierce lion with real bite and a very jumpy frog, but will the zoo send the perfect pet in the end? With bright, bold artwork, a catchy refrain and a pop-up surprise on every page, The Pop-Up Dear Zoo is a must for every child's bookshelf.

This is a huge favourite in our house.  Each page has a lift-the-flap for children to discover what's underneath (animals) and my little one loves to make the animal noises.  A simple but classic story that is enjoyable for the adult to read with the child.

This is a fantastic book that that has minimal words. It has  great pictures that young children can open the flaps to see so the are involved in the reading of the book. As the book repeats "so they send me a" .. Children pick up very quickly the flow of the book. It's a firm favourite with both my 2 and 5 year old. 

A nice small book that little hands can hold and little fingers can turn.

My daughter loves the original dear zoo book and this one was even more fun. She adored opening the pop up pages to reveal an truly enormous elephant and a very hoppy frog. I this she loves this version even more than the first one.

This pop up version is perfect for toddlers, although you have to be careful with their little hands not to destroy the pop ups. My son particularly loves the page with the lion because it is quite scary with the mouth opening. It is also fun to identify all the animals.

This is a perennial favourite in our house which comes off the shelf again & again. Both boys love it, especially if make animal noises on each page! The pop-ups are great & have survived well (as long as it stays out of bubba's hands!). We do have the board book version as well but the pop-up just adds that little bit extra to an already great book.
