Item description for Apollo by Caroline Gregoire...
Often-overlooked concepts will never be the same. Apollo is not just any old dog - he's a Super Dog! He can divide himself into halves, he can be on the right and the left, above and below, by himself, or in a crowd.

I bought this for my 3 year old, who has an extremely short attention span. He doesn't like many books, especially those without flaps, moving parts, etc....but he loves his Apollo book! I'm not sure he's absorbing all the great information contained (over, under, whole, pieces, half, and so on), but he has great fun seeing all the crazy positions Apollo gets into.

Apollo is no ordinary dachshund. He is, we learn (and excuse me for giving away a major plot point) Super Dog. Surely few others of his breed can perform tricks vertically, horizontally and diagonally while remaining adorable from every angle.
Apollo (both the book and the dog) are oversized along the horizontal axis, the better to work their charms on us. And those charms are considerable, in the spare words and the witty paintings.
