This book is the story of Uncle Bob taking his six nieces and nephews to the zoo where they encounter lions, deer, tigers, monkeys, a bear and an elephant, all displayed in three-layered pop-up pictures, giving the effect of seeing the animals in cages.  Each 3-D picture is accompanied by a "natural history story" of the animal shown.

This is the third pop-up book published by Nister; ‘Wild Animal Stories’ and ‘Little Pets’ being the other two. - It is quite unusual to find a much loved and used book in such good condition!
