A Lift-the-Flap Book

Detailed illustrations lend a humorous touch to this lift-the-flap search for a wily dachshund, led by a playful pair of twins while their parents are left with the brunt of the backyard chores.
It's time to do some yard work, but the twins would much rather play "Find the Dachshund" with Stretch, who's exceedingly good at the game. "Peekaboo, Stretch! I see your tail." Or not, as the case might be! Flip the flap and you'll see that it's really a length of hose poking under the gate. Could that be a paw underneath the tablecloth? A nose behind the shed door? A floppy ear in the wagon? Where, oh where could that clever dog be?
