The perennial game of hide-and- seek between parent and child inspires a lilting text and charming illustrations.
It’s time for lunch, but where, oh, where is Emily Greene? Her father searches for her everywhere, but without any luck. Look carefully, and don’t forget to check behind the curtains! In her first picture book, acclaimed author Norma Fox Mazer teams with renowned illustrator Christine Davenier to create a merry game of hide-and-seek. Readers will delight in searching for giggling Emily and in the warm relationship between this irrepressible little girl and her loving, good-humored father.
