Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In a pair of heavy cardstock books by Lynn Reiser, favorite pets lead readers through the seasons with all five senses. My Dog Truffle begins with an opening spread of the pooch on a walk in the garden, with a woodpecker tapping on a tree. Icicles forming on a birdbath and Truffle's white breath indicate the changing season. The next page pairs a series of questions ("What did Truffle hear?/ What did Truffle see?") opposite relevant body parts on flaps. The flap with Truffle's ear hides the response "Truffle hears a woodpecker"; his eye, "Truffle saw his breath." Soon snow is falling. My Cat Tuna, her environment filled with robins and ladybugs, similarly greets the spring. (HarperCollins/Greenwillow, $14.95 each 20p ages 2-up ISBN 0-688-16875-2; 16874-4; Feb.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
Lift the flaps and learn about the five senses as Truffle, an irresistible dog with tight curly brown hair enthusiastically explores a garden and a snowfall or enters a comfortable den with a bowl of food by the fire and a portrait of great-grandfather dog over the mantel. After each scene there is a page with a column of questions: What did Truffle hear? see? smell? taste? and feel? To find the answer lift the appropriate flap. By lifting a flap over the dog's ear next to the question, "What did Truffle hear?" the answer is, "Truffle heard a woodpecker." Turning back to the page before, by gum, there was a woodpecker! The pictures are charming and not only does the young reader learn about the five senses, but there is also a lesson to be learned about observing what is in the pictures. A companion book, My Cat Tuna, is available for those who prefer to read about cats. 2001, Greenwillow Books/HarperCollins, $9.95. Ages 2 up. Reviewer: Eleanor Heldrich
School Library Journal
PreS-These lift-the-flap books about the five senses give young children an opportunity to find out what a cat and a dog hear, see, smell, taste, and feel in the house and in the garden. Three of the double-page spreads in each book feature a list of five questions opposite a colorful watercolor painting with flaps. Each sensory question lines up with one of the five horizontal flaps illustrated with the particular part of the body to which it refers. For example, "What did Tuna hear?" is opposite the flap depicting the ears of the cat. When the flap is lifted, readers learn that Tuna hears a robin; the rain; and later, inside the house, she hears herself purr. The books will be too difficult to manage for storytimes due to the multiple horizontal flaps, and possibly, for some small hands. However, the large illustrations, simple language, and sparse text make them appropriate for one-on-one sharing.-DeAnn Tabuchi, San Anselmo Public Library, CA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
