Excerpt

Who wants to go play Hide and Seek?
Everyone hide. Bunny don't peek!

With eyes shut tight so she can't see,
Bunny counts out, "One, two, three"

Fox sneaks behind a fallen log.
Oops, she almost sat on Frog.

Where is Turtle? It's hard to tell
If that's a stone or Turtle's shell...

Reviews

"A wonderful rendition of the ever-familiar hide-and-seek game, this rhyming story gives readers a forest-animal version. Bunny kicks things off by being "It" as all the other creatures run off to their respective woodland hiding places. While Bunny doesn't take long to locate most of the critters, it is the largest of the beasts, Bear, whose whereabouts remain elusive. Bunny and company bravely go where few have gone before to locate their ursine friend. It must be heading toward winter in the wood because although Bear is located in his cave and roused, he doesn't remain awake for long. With charming pen-and-ink and watercolor spreads that depict the animals' bewilderment, this fun-loving, simply-told story will appeal to the pre-school set." -- School Library Journal
