Where is Alfred's camera? The answer to this question will take readers through the pages of this campy and unusual book and into the photographer dog's ten favorite collections'each one a fascinating jumble studded with dozens of hidden objects. Hilarious photographs of Alfred are inset in fancy gold frames on each spread, overlapping the intriguing collections: a tangle of keys, a batch of doggy treats, a box of shells.Subtle hand-tinted color gives the book its funky, retro look, and Alfred has the sad-eyed canine appeal irresistible to any fan of William Wegman's weimaraners. The text runs around the edges of every large spread, cluing readers into things they should look for in each big collage. The most important object they must find is, of course, Alfred's camera. Without it, he won't be able to take a picture of his best friend, Sport. But if readers can discover Alfred's camera before Sport's birthday party, the end result is sure to be picture perfect.
