A little child is playing hide and seek with her friends. We can tell that there is someone hiding in a closet and when we open the closet door we see that Andrew is standing there among the clothes. Next the little girl notices a suspicious looking lump under the blanket in the dog basket. Is one of her friends hiding under the blue blanket? Sure enough, when we lift the blanket we see that Emily is hiding there with three puppies. There is still one friend to find, and there is also a surprise waiting for the little girl and her playmates.

   In this sturdy lift-the flap title, little children will get to join in a game of hide and seek.  They will enjoy seeing who is hiding under the flaps, and will love the way the story ends.
