Rod Campbell has been writing and illustrating children's books for over thirty-five years. Best known for his classic lift-the-flap title Dear Zoo, which has sold over eight million copies worldwide, he is also the creator of the much loved preschool character Buster. Ingeniously simple, with touches of gentle humour, Rod's books are enjoyed by children, parents and teachers alike.
Endangered species may seem a weighty topic for a board book for one to two year olds but Rod Campbell is, after all, the famed author of Dear Zoo - so if anyone knows how to talk simply and clearly to little ones, it's him. Though toddlers might not understand the concept of endangered animals and conservation, they absolutely do understand the concept of looking after the things they love, and most toddlers love animals. Therefore, this lovely flap book is a great one to read together - to make the animal noises, enjoy the repeating text and the flaps, but also to ask each other, 'I would look after them. Wouldn't you?' * BookTrust *
