What do you get if you cross a snake with a cat? It's a cake, of course! And how about a tortoise with a fish? Why, that's a tortish! A very silly but absolutely engaging book that will charm the whole family.

A lovely book from Axel Scheffler. Anyone who has read any of Julia Donaldson's books will be familiar with the illustrations as they are synonymous with Axel. This is a great book and a great way for children to learn about animals as well as have a bit of fun and shuffle their features around to make new animals and names for them, my children love doing this.

This is a great book that fans of Axel Scheffler will instantly recognise and love.  It was perfect for my three year old and her brilliant imagination.  She loved creating all of the different animals despite my 8 year old's best attempts to get her to 'do it properly'.  We loved the illustrations and coming up with some very funny creatures together.  It is a book you can look at time and time again as there are so many combinations of animals you can make that it never gets boring.  We love this book and think everyone else will too!

Such a good book! Has provided Ameleah with lots of fun! It's such a strong and sturdy book - ideal because she has a habit of ripping pages! She loves to mix up the animals and tells me what the head and body belong too - but she also loves to match them correctly! Much better then expected!

My 4 year old daughter loved this book. She spent ages turning all the pages and laughing at the animals she had created! Then we read it together lots. Even my 6 year old daughter really enjoyed this book too.

This isn't what I was expecting, so much much more! I thought it was would be a standard flip flap book. It's very different to any other book Sophie already has. It's lovely and sturdy with strong pages, great for a toddler. The ring binding adds to this strength. I was wondering why it had that, then we started turning the pages. How brilliant! Perfect to engage the little one imaginations , she loves turning all the pages and muddling all the animals up into wonderful and wacky combinations. She is learning her first words and knows cat and dog, so this is making is super fun. Brilliant idea. Lovely bold illustrations, very high quality print . Great animal descriptions. A flip flap book like no other!

My little boy loves this book, he has the flip flap safari and this is just as good. The pictures are great and it's so much fun mixing the animals to make funny names. He also likes me reading out the rhymes and guessing what the animal is. Really good books, he now wants the whole set.

my little girl loves this book, shes not put it down since it came. its a great sturdy book with a lovely ring binder to help turn the pages. we are currently learning all the types of animals, her favourite is the doggy. the pages are lovely and bright with lots of detail. i love that this book is a hardback as i think it is perfect for toddlers who generally don't take the best of care with toys.

Flip Flap Pets is a fantastic interactive book for little ones. It is a tough spiral bound book with rhyming text and animal pictures that you can mix up to create new crazy new creatures. Have you heard of a goldfinsect? How about a Lizabbit? No? Well neither had we until we read this book. There are apparently 121 possible combinations. We haven’t kept count ourselves but we have tried them all. There is certainly plenty in this book to ignite imaginations and keep little (and not so little) ones occupied for a very long time. The crazy creature combinations, bizarre names and funny rhymes have caused a lot of giggles in this house. Flip Flap Pets has become a particular favourite of Theo (2) who is fascinated by the different animals he can make. I understand that this is one of a series of Flip Flap books so, if he’s a good boy, perhaps Santa will bring him a few more!

We all loved this book, it was so much better than I expected.  My youngest (18mths)  loved turning the pages over in different orders and as the book is well made and sturdy I didn't have to worry too much.  My eldest (4.5) laughed so much at the names of the newly created animals.  The book is so well written it will be a favourite in our house for a long long time!

My two younger children had a quick play with this book before they lost interest however my 7 year old and his friend spent a long time making different combinations of animals. They thought it was hilarious and really enjoyed showing everyone what they could do. A very sturdy book that will last.
