Each animal arriving from the zoo as a possible pet fails to suit its prospective owner, until just the right one is found. Movable flaps reveal the contents of each package.

My son is 19mo now and this is one of his favorite book! He loves to lift and see what's animal. It is a very funny animal book.

This book is about a child who gets a gift from the zoo, but they can't quite get it right and send it back. Over, and over and over again until they get it right! It's a fun flap book to pull and discover what is hiding in the gifts the zoo has sent.
