Raves and Reviews

A chunky board bookabout colors features photographs of dogs and incorporates many interactiveelements. Even the front cover of this title is interactive. Pull a large redtab, and a bulldog's head moves back and forth as he chews on the shoelace of ared tennis shoe. Inside, further interactive features, rhyming text, andillustrations featuring cute pups and their adorable antics await. For example,the orange pages offer a collage of pumpkins, autumn foliage, puppies, and a cat,reading: "Orange the patch of pumpkins, / Orange the autumn leaves, /Orange the frumpy, napping cat… / that I chase up a tree." One of thepumpkins is a flap that conceals the face of a precious pup, and another,larger flap hides a pop-up tree branch on which an orange kitty perches. Otherpages incorporate some more noxious surprises, such as: "Green the swamp Ilove to swim in, / Green the summer grass, / Green the color of the air… / whenmy dog food gives me gas." Pull the tab here to trigger a large greencloud that emanates from the back end of a suitably embarrassed-looking bassethound. This ambitious, interactive exploration of color will be of particularappeal to dog lovers. (Board book. 2-5)
