What is happening outside today? Peek through the window to find out. What is happening inside? Peek again! Whimsical die-cuts throughout lead to charming and surprising reveals with every turn of the page. Filled with fun details (can you find the two mice playing throughout?), this deceptively simple book is one readers will visit again and again.
Lizi Boyd has written and illustrated many children's books and she also creates other works of delight. Her dogs, Olive and Zuli, assisted in the making of this book. She lives in Vermont.
