What are all the zoo animals up to when no one is looking?
 
The animals at the zoo can stretch, growl, and roar. But when no one is looking, they are up to much more! A charming lift-and-reveal picture book perfect for young children playing on the notion that animals do funny and often absurd activities when no one is looking.

A funny, enjoyable look at what the animals in the zoo might be doing when no-one's around. The gatefold sleeves are sure to make it a hit with toddlers.

A rhyming look at animals who live in the zoo and what they do when nobody's looking. Each two page spread has a flap that reveals in pictures each animal's hobbies. Great read aloud!
