A more recent edition of this lift-the-flap book under the title My Dog, My Cat, My Mum and Me is published by Walker books, in Australia and the UK, and by Candlewick Press in the USA.
First the dog gets mysteriously fat, then the cat, and suddenly there seem to be puppies and kittens all over the house! But when Mum gets fat, too, this little girl starts to put two and two together. Look for the delightful surprises under the flaps in this very special counting book.
I loved this book. The story is simple yet amusing and the unexpected ending is sure to bring a smile. Lollipops
