Each page turn offers a diamond-shaped double-page spread that asks youngsters to guess an animal based on the sound it makes. "Who says meow?" queries a cheerful blue spread. And here's where it gets fun: the answer is found by unfolding the pages, transforming the spread into a whiskered cat's face, with perky triangle ears. The pattern repeats to reveal 11 vividly painted animals by book's end, including a turkey, snake, pig, sheep, and peacock. Sturdily constructed, this clever book will withstand grabbing and multiple reading sessions." —Booklist
