Tails, toes, noses — and a hint of each animal peeking out — let preschoolers guess who’s hiding.

Whose tail? Whose toes? Whose twitchy nose? Who is that hiding behind a big hunk of cheese? What has a cold wet nose, a big pink snout, or a long gray trunk? In this lift-the-flap book for the very young, simple, repetitive text and bold, bright illustrations combine to make a funny guessing-game of a book.
