Dear Zoo Live on Stage! Giveaway: Dear Zoo is a book which will always remind me of the boys. It was one of Monkey’s favourites when he was young and is fast becoming one of Kippers too. For those of you who have not come across the book before its a lift a flap book which details the story of a child who writes to the zoo asking them to send a pet. There is a lion, a monkey, elephant and even a snake. But will they ever send the perfect pet? There have been over eight million copies sold since the book was first published in 1982.

Illustrated and written by Rod Campbell, the brilliant new stage show is touring again from the 4 September and we have a family ticket up for grabs for one of the dates on the tour. Full tour details are on the website

Dear Zoo live on stage! is suitable for children aged 2 – 6 years old. The book is brought to life through child-engaging puppets, original music and lots of audience interaction, the show immediately appeals to families and children who already love the book and will serve as a wonderful introduction to those coming to the story for the first time. Commenting on Dear Zoo live on stage! Rod Campbell said

“I can hardly believe that Dear Zoo has celebrated its 35th anniversary and I really am enormously touched and delighted that successive generations of young children continue to love DearZoo – their obvious pleasure when interacting with it is so gratifying to see, and for me is the very greatest of compliments!”
