This item:Our Zoo by June Mottershead Paperback £. 5 Great book written by June Mottershead about her own experience of growing up at Chester Zoo. 5. Only 13 left in stock (more on the way). Instead this is the story of the Mottershead family moving to Oakfield, the house at the centre of the zoo to this day, and the gradual opening of the zoo.
