Dear Zoo is the much-loved best-selling storybook from Rod Campbell, the master of interactive storytelling for young children.  A timeless classic that finds a truly original way to unite discovery and fun, it is popular with parents and children alike. It has sold over 8 million copies worldwide since its publication in 1982 and is published in more than 20 languages. Forming an essential part of every child’s first library, Dear Zoo is available in a wide range of different formats, published by Macmillan Children's Books. Celebrating 35 years in 2017, the story of a child who writes to the zoo asking them to send a pet continues to delight each new generation of children as they lift the flaps in search of the perfect animal.
