Flip Flap Dogs
Publisher: Nosy Crow
What do you get if you combine a Bulldog with a Dalmatian? A Bulldatian! Or a Dachshund with a Poodle? A Dachshoodle! Flip through 11 pictures and definitions of dogs and see what happens when you combine the top of one dog and the bottom of another. The text is rhyming and features basic information about each dog, with a full page facing illustration.
In board book format with a ring bound centre, this is a great book for young kids that love dogs, and who also love making up silly words. Playing superbly with the concept of recent trends for popular crossbreeds such as Labradoodles, this is a great idea that successfully marries the split page-flip book format with its subject matter.
