From author Curtis Jobling, the designer of Bob the Builder, and illustrator Tom McLaughlin (The Accidental Prime Minister), comes this amazing animal extravaganza.

Roll up, roll up! Read all about it! Elderly farmer wins lottery!
Old MacDonald, of MacDonald's Farm, is the talk of the cattle market and the most eligible pensioner in the paddock. With wellington boots, a jaunty flat cap and a spanking new muck-thrower topping his shopping list, lottery winner Old MacDonald has one million pounds burning a hole in his dungarees. He just needs to find the right things to spend it on...
Find out what happens when Old MacDonald wins the lottery, sells his farm and buys a zoo. And what a zoo it is...with plenty of fun antics to discover by lifting all the flaps.
Old MacDonald had a zoo, ee aye, ee aye, whooooooaaaahhhhh!
The interactive laugh-out-loud read guaranteed to become a favourite with kids aged 3 and up.
"Younger children will find irresistible Curtis Jobling's and Tom McLaughlin's Old MacDonald Had a Zoo, in which a grumpy Pools winner fails to keep his menagerie under control." Amanda Craig, The New Statesman
"Old MacDonald had a Zoo is terrific!" Lorraine Kelly
Curtis Jobling is probably best known as the designer of Bob the Builder, but he also writes wonderful books for all ages and has been known to illustrate some too! His Wereworld tales are international hits for teens and Frankenstein's Cat is a charming picture book and TV series. He lives in Cheshire with his wife and children.
Tom McLaughlin spent nine years as the political cartoonist before becoming an illustrator. Since then he has created many beautiful picture books, including The Diabolical Mr Tiddles and as The Story Machine. He lives in Devon with his wife and two children.
