Nice artwork, but disjointed storyline and brittle flaps
on 5 January 2009
This book contains 10 double pages with flaps on each of the first nine right-hand pages. The flaps are pretty pointless in this book, included presumably because this is part of a similar series. In another Spot book I have read, Spot was actually on a quest to find something so it made sense to be looking behind or under flaps, but not here. In this book the flaps are just a nuisance and they are very prone to being torn, creased or ripped off altogether by a toddler.
The artwork is pleasant, but there is no continuity in the storyline. Each double page is almost stand-alone, not following on from what went before.
In terms of content, this is an old-style book which cannot hold its own in the modern marketplace with so much better product available.
In short, a disappointment.
