I don't like the fact that when you lift the flaps there are wild animals that would never be found in a closet, under the bed, etc. I was a sensitive kid and so is my daughter. A few times I've perceived that she's uncomfortable with the alligator that is under the bed skirt flap. IMO, the book would be much better with real things behind these flaps -- a cat under the bed, a toy in the box, a broom in the closet, a ball under the stairs, a sock under the rug, etc. The concept of finding Spot is great; why does it need to involve lions, snakes, and alligators in the house?
