This clever pop-up book features a little bouncy poetry in the form of riddles directing the child being read to to peek under each hat: a fireman hat holds "Sniffs and wags, and lot and lots/and lots of little BLACK polka dots." In other words: a dalmation pup.

Each creature is appropriate to the hat it's under, and different colors are part of the clues featured on each spread. The story ends with a delicious twist, with all the animals under the last hat plus the child, reflected in the mirror.

To re"cap" (groan! sorry), we've got bright illustrations, rhymes, riddles and logical thinking, a surprise on each spread, lessons in colors, and the big finale with the child's reflection. It just does not get any better than this for ages 2-5.
