Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Toddlers' puppy pal Biscuit returns with a lift-the-flap smorgasbord. Upper- and lowercase letters cover 26 flaps, one per, with a corresponding alphabetized item or phrase underneath. Light, cheery spreads depict the amiable animal engaged in typical doggy behavior; he thrives playing outside, and feline buddy Puddles makes several appearances. Some spot illustrations add additional interest; there's a picture of a duck near the Dd, while Biscuit digs voraciously underneath. The adorable dog remains the star throughout. "H is a heart on Biscuit's new sweater, / and also for a hug, the bigger the better!" There are some expected, non-canine connections (U for umbrella, X for xylophone). Rhyming phrases move the text fairly steadily toward Biscuit's well-deserved slumber. Biscuit appears engaged throughout as he peers into the flaps or serves as an active participant. With a quick turn of his head, the little dog interacts with both his beloved owner and the natural world he encounters. Likely to breed more fans for this hard-working pup. (Board book. 1-4)
