Three cats, Tiny, Moonpie and Andre, are convinced there's a dog in this book. Convinced dogs are 'snappy, smelly and noisy, hairy and scary ... and dogs HATE cats', the cats want to hide. Will the dog find them in the piano? Or in a closet? Or squeezed into a suitcase? Good questions!

You'll be lifting a series of flaps to see where these cats are hiding. Then, the unthinkable happens. The cats discover that this little dog is not snappy, scary or noisy. And suddenly everyone is on friendly terms until the little dog becomes afraid of one of the bigger cats that wants a hug. Now it is the dog's turn to run away and hide. And you get to lift some more flaps to see where he is.

By the time you reach the final page the animals will have worked things out, but you will have enjoyed this fun hide-and-seek romp from start to finish.

This is certainly one of the more amusing and clever lift the flap books available today. You'll discover dogs and cats can share the same turf too!
