Praise

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

The bold, simple illustrations stand out against the double-spread blank background and minimal setting details. This fun, interactive book is a joy.
—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.
