Harry the hippo continues to play his favorite game—but luckily for his friends, it’s hard to hide a hippo!

At the playground, Harry’s friends search high and low. Whether he’s under the seesaw, behind the park bench, or hanging precariously from the swing set, it’s hard not to find Harry. But the fun is in the searching, and the friends are always up for another round!

Praise For Hide and Seek Harry at the Playground

The innate absurdity of his hiding spots provides all the laughs readers will need.
—Publishers Weekly

Harrison's warm, round illustrations make for an excellent introduction to the "spot the item" genre.... A brightly lit "find it" game that focuses more on laughs than skill.
