This 6 1/2" by 6 1/2" thick board book has five spreads which include the inside of both the front and back covers. Each of the first four spreads has one or, in the case of the fourth page, two flaps to be lifted in order to discover which of the four furry animals that inhabit the same house is hiding under the flap of that particular spread. The last page brings back the animals in reverse order in response to the question, "Can you remember who lives in this furry house?" In spite of the furry title of the book, there are no tactile patches. Furry refers to the animals not the book. It is a simple book for the very earliest of readers. 2003, Tiger Tales, Ages 6 mo. to 18 mo.
