Booklist Review

With the uncertainty of There Are Cats in This Book (2008) and There Are No Cats in This Book (2010) behind us, our trio of flighty felines have a new problem: someone drank their milk, chewed their toy, and left behind a peculiar odor. Horrors! It must be a snappy and yappy, smelly and noisy, hair and scary dog. By directly asking the reader for help lifting flaps, the cats go into hiding, first behind a sofa, then a piano, in a closet.Seeing the cats squashed into ever more uncomfortable spaces is a hoot, especially when contrasted with the innocent-looking purple dog. But as soon as they befriend the pup with nifty flaps that make each cat lean over to pet it there comes a new difficulty: the reader scares the dog away, necessitating a flap-fest of searching for it. With sturdy construction nearly worthy of a board book, this ought to withstand plenty of repeat abuse, which it will get, thanks to Schwarz's gregarious dialogue-only text and her adorably simple pen-and-inks. Let the fur fly.--Kraus, Daniel Copyright 2014 Booklist


Publisher's Weekly Review

Cat trio Tiny, Moonpie, and Andre are back, following their antics in There Are Cats in This Book and There Are No Cats in This Book, certain that they sense the presence of a dog. Readers will be smiling at the cats' inane chatter from the first pages. "Oh, no! We don't want to meet a dog!" howls Andre. "What is a dog?" Tiny asks. "Can you move this sofa?" asks Moonpie, drawing attention to the first of many laugh-out-loud lift-flaps. This one reveals a skinny purple hound who looks, if possible, even more vacant than the cats. The cats hide in a piano, closet, and suitcase, before finally recognizing the dog as a kindred spirit. The flaps will probably require tape repairs, as this one will be asked for again and again. Ages 3-7. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.


School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 1-The three feline protagonists from There Are Cats in This Book (2008) and There Are No Cats in this Book (2010, both Candlewick) are back. As the latest title suggests, the cats (Tiny, Moonpie, and Andre) quickly confirm that there is, in fact, a dog in this book. With the exception of Tiny, the cats are very hesitant and a little fearful to encounter a dog. As in the previous books, the dialog is directed at readers, who "help" the cats by lifting a series of flaps throughout the book. As readers unfold the sofa, a fluffy purple dog is discovered, resulting in the cats hiding in a closet, piano, and suitcase. Soon though, the cats conquer their fears and befriend the dog. They encourage readers to do the same, but the dog becomes frightened and must again be found among the flaps. The bold, simple illustrations stand out against the double-spread blank background and minimal setting details. This fun, interactive book is a joy.-Laura Hunter, Mount Laurel Library, NJ (c) Copyright 2014. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
