Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
From bipeds to quadrupeds (not to mention one centipede), animal gams long and short, clawed and hoofed, are clues to the identity of partially hidden creatures in this amiable lift-the-flap guessing game. An incomplete, four-line rhyme on each double-page spread offers hints ("`My big long legs/ will make you laugh.' / These are the legs/ of a spotted..."); then the entire, usually kooky image is revealed behind the picture-integrated flap, along with the last word in the verse ("giraffe"). A pair of spindly limbs visible beneath a theater-curtain flap belong to a singing bluebird (sheet music in its wing); four pudgy, pink legs, suspended in mid-air below a flap cloud, dangle from a parachuting pig. These lighthearted, loosely rendered illustrations give the narrow premise here a solid leg up. Ages 3-7. (May)
