Long time classic book was not available for a long time in other format but a board book. It is back and is still adored by kids!

What kind of pet would you ask the zoo to send?

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.
