Rod Campbell’s best-selling lift the flap book has delighted generations of young readers since it was first published in 1982.
It has sold more than eight million copies worldwide.
It's about a letter to the zoo from a child who wants a pet. They send various different animals, all of which prove unsuitable: the elephant is too big, the lion too fierce, the giraffe too tall, the monkey too naughty.
Join the company to see what the zoo has sent: the perfect pet – in the end.
