Little children love playing peekaboo, and they often want to play the game long after their grownups have tired of it. This situation can cause a problem at times when frustrated grownups finally insist that they do not want to play peekaboo any more. Thankfully, the creator of this wordless novelty board book has made it possible for young children to play peekaboo on their own.

   On every spread we see an animal that has its paws (or wings) over its face. When we open the paws (or wings), an animal’s face is revealed. Children are going to love seeing the friendly faces of a bear, fox, pig, dog, cat, hedgehog and owl looking out at them as they explore this book. On the last spread children will get a little surprise that will surely delight them.

   With flaps to open, no words that need to be read, and animal friends to play peekaboo with, this novelty title is sure to become a firm favorite with young peekaboo fans.
