  • Short Summary

    Quirky stuff - probably designed for children - dogs playing football and zoo material. c. 1950

  • Description

    Bantam Pack titles.

    Title reads: "It's Fun Being An Animal!"

    A young man and women catch puppies and dress them in striped shirts. The dogs then play a game they all leap in the air and hit a balloon with their noses. There is a "goalkeeper" who is attached to the goal-post by a lead.

    Chessington Zoo, Surrey. At the entrance to the Zoo two women lead in a man dressed as a monkey. The boy in the kiosk looks surprised as do a horse and a tiger. The monkey steals fruit from a fruit seller and shares some food with a bear - they push a dish of food backwards and forwards between them.
