The Lovereading4Kids comment

With an irresistible story that directly involves the reader, this book's clever design and bright, gestural illustrations make for a LOT of fun for cat (and dog) lovers! It is a completely interactive book brimming over with all kinds of fantastic flaps and fabulous flips that reveal lots of little surprises and jokes for children to enjoy and even for parents to share with their toddlers too!

Synopsis

Is There a Dog in This Book? by Viviane Schwarz

In this third title in the extraordinarily inventive, brilliantly interactive Cats series from award-winning illustrator Viviane Schwarz - our three favourite picture book cats Tiny, Moonpie and Andre make a new furry friend...Something smells funny...what can it be? Wait, hang on a second, is it a DOG? Is there a dog in this book?! Oh no! Tiny, Moonpie and Andre are SCARED of dogs! Dogs are snappy and yappy, smelly and noisy and...they HATE cats. So, they all try and hide from him - behind the couch, under the piano, in the wardrobe - but when the little doggy finally finds them, well, they simply can't get enough of him! He is really very soft. And they want YOU to love him, too - go on, just give him a little cuddle.

Books for Keeps Bright and imaginative ... a wonderful interactive story experience Baby London Exuberant lift-the-flap action Metro This is a charming picturebook about the process of making new friends, with a surprise hiding on every page under a series of inventive lift-the-flap patches.
