Rod Campbell has been writing and illustrating children's books for over 25 years. Best known for his classic lift-the-flap book, DEAR ZOO, he is also the creator of the much-loved preschool character Buster. Ingeniously simple, with touches of gentle humour, Rod's books are loved by children, parents and teachers alike.

Contrary to the idea that'Dear Zoo', on the surface, appears to be a story which children could not learn a great deal from; it in fact does have learning potential for young children and is a great starting point to encourage them to learn to love books.
