What's in the Witch's Kitchen by Nick Sharratt - ESSENTIAL

Sharratt, Nick.  What's in the Witch's Kitchen?  Candlewick Press, 2009. $12.99.  LIFT THE FLAP PICTURE BOOK.  

This book takes something that is found in most kitchens (fridge, teapot, etc...) and the reader has to guess what is inside.  Then, by lifting the flap, the reader sees what is inside.  But what is great about this book is that if you lift the flap from the opposite direction, you see something else.  For example, inside the toaster there is "some hot, crunchy toast" and "a grumpy, burnt ghost".  

My children really enjoyed reading this book.  They were lifting the flaps over and over.
