“A hilarious romp… Schwarz adds loads of funny touches, like having the dog “speak” in childlike stick drawings, while the cats, of course, hold forth confidently in English.”—New York Times
“Packed with lively drawings and text, this inventive book will liven up bedtimes as little hands lift up the flaps to help search for the hidden dog” –Prima Baby & Pregnancy
“A wonderful, interactive story for the whole family.” –The Bookseller

“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. The loose drawing style gives the story a kind of madcap energy and the text in speech bubbles makes reading it aloud a lively experience. –Children’s Books Ireland Recommended Read
“The bold, simple illustrations stand out against the double-spread blank background and minimal setting details. This fun, interactive book is a joy.”—Laura Hunter, Mount Laurel Library, NJ, School Library Journal

“With sturdy construction nearly worthy of a board book, this ought to withstand plenty of repeat abuse, which it will get, thanks to Schwarz’s gregarious dialogue-only text and her adorably simple pen-and-inks. Let the fur fly.”—Booklist Online

“Many laugh-out-loud lift-flaps. … This one will be asked for again and again.”—Publishers Weekly

“Lifting the artfully shaped and angled flaps reveals multiple surprises, from the dog itself, first met lurking behind a sofa, to a cupboard-dwelling dinosaur. Better yet, along with a hand-lettered text, animal figures rendered in vigorous daubs of black and colored inks give the episode an endearing, informal energy reminiscent of Chris Raschka’s Daisy outings. Eric Hill’s classic Spot books come off as rather staid … next to this rambunctious, interactive hide-and-seek.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Little ones can lift the flaps to check in on the felines as they hide in the closet, behind the sofa, and even inside the piano. The bright illustrations and lively story will win over cat and dog lovers alike.”—Parents Magazine (tablet edition)

“Schwarz’s vibrant art and spot-on text are sure to engage preschoolers again and again. … A nonstop delight for young readers.”—BookPage Online
