Open the Suitcase by Ruth Wielockx - OPTIONAL

Wielockx, Ruth Open the Suitcase.  PICTURE BOOK.  Clavis, 2017.  $18.  9781605374017.

A series of suitcases and a series of animals.  Which ones belong together?  Lift the open to open each case and solve the puzzle and see the animals at work. 

Such a  cute idea and great illustrations, but … I have a couple of qualms.  One – the flaps are regular book page – not very sturdy.  Two – each page asks you to find the items on the page that were in the suitcase, but you have to flip back and forth to do the matching.  If they were side by side it would be so much easier.  A little advance product testing would have highlighted these flaws quickly.
