    • Abstract:
      Books with flaps comprise a small, but recognisable sub-genre of non-fiction texts for children. Whilst they are popular with young readers, they sit unhappily within an educational discourse of non-fiction that is dominated by notions of information retrieval and genre theory. This article considers the purpose and function of flaps in a number of texts and proposes that the best of these books provide pertinent lessons for readers about the nature of ‘information’, and about the playful nature of reading itself.
