Where Is My Nose?

  • In this interactive story, young readers turn and fold pages to reveal how the journey can be just as remarkable as the destination.


    In this humorous and heartwarming story, a dog wakes up without his nose and sets out on a search to find it. Despite the obvious challenge of searching without a nose, the dog explores various places.

    At the seaside, he mistakes a fluffy white cloud for his nose. Underwater, he spots something red that he hopes might be his nose, only to discover it’s a fish.


    As our protagonist continues his quest for his nose, he realizes how far he has come and the wonderful things he has discovered. Curious about what more he can find in this vast world, he decides to keep searching.


    Die-cut elements provide for an interactive reading experience and lessons on perspective sure to delight parents and young readers alike.
