Where Is Tippy Toes?: 11/01/12

cover art

Where Is Tippy Toes? by Betsy Lewin is a lift the flap type book about a ginger cat who likes to hide. Tippy's child owner knows all the cat's hiding places, even if no one else does.

Children are asked to guess where Tippy is hiding as they turn the pages. There's usually a small clue peeking out from the flap (an ear, a tail, maybe the cat's eyes). A quick flip and Tippy's hiding spot is revealed.

There's a sentimental ending for any child growing up with a beloved cat in the family. My daughter especially loves the end and has been campaigning to allow either of our cats to share her bed like Tippy Toes does.

Four stars
