Where's Brian's Bottom?

About the book

Over 2 metres/6.5 feet of fold-out fun!

Brian is a very long sausage dog. So long he’s lost his bottom.

Can you find Brian’s bottom? Where could it be? Have you looked in the hallway? Has Pauline the parrot seen it? Maybe it’s in the living room, with Alan the hamster? Or perhaps in the kitchen with hungry Dave the tortoise? In the bathroom with Derrick the duck? Oh where could it be?

Search the house and help Brian find his bottom with this innovative concertina board book!

It teaches young children all about the different rooms in a house, different animals and the sounds they make and encourages a sense of curiosity and searching – as well as being great fun!
