Circus: Over 50 Flaps Plus Seek-and-Find!
by Roxie Munro
Ages 4-7 24 pages Chronicle Books September 2006 Hardcover    

There is something exciting about peeking behind flaps, especially when you are seeking a list of hidden treasures to find. Roxie Munro takes the joy of flaps and adds the adventure of seek and find, all within the excitement of a Circus!

The opening pages are the flaps of a big top circus tent. Lift a flap to see the title and author, lift another to see the ringmaster tip his hat. Flip the page and see the clowns getting ready for their performance, accompanied by a poem to raise the level of excitement …until…finally… “Let the show begin”!

The following pages show the various circus acts - the trapeze twins, the royal red riders, the pyramid brothers, the astounding agile acrobats, Arnosky’s amazing animals, the elephant ballet, and hi-wire Harry and Harriet. For every act, the eager participants must search the flaps for each seek-and-find list then search once again for the hidden treasures on the list. Max the Cat and Fred the dog find a place to hide in every scene.

Circus is an interactive adventure of few words but full of lots of fun.
