Schwarz, Viviane. Is There a Dog in This Book?, PICTURE BOOK. Candlewick Press, 2014. $16.99. Content: G.
There are three cats in this book (as the story goes). What they discover is that there is a dog in their book too and they are quite disturbed by it. They are eventually discovered by the dog and decide he’s not as bad as they think.
I really wanted to like this book. It has flaps on some pages, which I know will be appealing to some readers. I just didn’t feel like there was anything particularly unique or intriguing about the story. The dialogue was all very basic and I was never fully invested in what was happening.
