From School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1—The three feline protagonists from There Are Cats in This Book (2008) and There Are No Cats in this Book (2010, both Candlewick) are back. As the latest title suggests, the cats (Tiny, Moonpie, and Andre) quickly confirm that there is, in fact, a dog in this book. With the exception of Tiny, the cats are very hesitant and a little fearful to encounter a dog. As in the previous books, the dialog is directed at readers, who "help" the cats by lifting a series of flaps throughout the book. As readers unfold the sofa, a fluffy purple dog is discovered, resulting in the cats hiding in a closet, piano, and suitcase. Soon though, the cats conquer their fears and befriend the dog. They encourage readers to do the same, but the dog becomes frightened and must again be found among the flaps. The bold, simple illustrations stand out against the double-spread blank background and minimal setting details. This fun, interactive book is a joy.—Laura Hunter, Mount Laurel Library, NJ
A hilarious romp… Schwarz adds loads of funny touches, like having the dog "speak" in childlike stick drawings, while the cats, of course, hold forth confidently in English.

The bold, simple illustrations stand out against the double-spread blank background and minimal setting details. This fun, interactive book is a joy.
—School Library Journal
With sturdy construction nearly worthy of a board book, this ought to withstand plenty of repeat abuse, which it will get, thanks to Schwarz’s gregarious dialogue-only text and her adorably simple pen-and-inks. Let the fur fly.
Many laugh-out-loud lift-flaps. ... This one will be asked for again and again.
Lifting the artfully shaped and angled flaps reveals multiple surprises, from the dog itself, first met lurking behind a sofa, to a cupboard-dwelling dinosaur. Better yet, along with a hand-lettered text, animal figures rendered in vigorous daubs of black and colored inks give the episode an endearing, informal energy reminiscent of Chris Raschka's Daisy outings. Eric Hill's classic Spot books come off as rather staid ... next to this rambunctious, interactive hide-and-seek.
Little ones can lift the flaps to check in on the felines as they hide in the closet, behind the sofa, and even inside the piano. The bright illustrations and lively story will win over cat and dog lovers alike.
—Parents Magazine (tablet edition)
Schwarz’s vibrant art and spot-on text are sure to engage preschoolers again and again. ... A nonstop delight for young readers.
