The art is stunning, cut out images and patterns that tease the eye, this book is a visual delight. The rhyming less spectacular overall. At times I felt the text was a little forced to fit the rhyme rather than flowing naturally.

I would have given this 5 stars, but I think this will be one of those books that only last a few checkouts due to the cutout pages. Even my grown daughter sitting next to me in church, showing it to her daughter tried to open the book and turn the pages using the cutouts in each page.

Bold black and white images over colorful cutouts create a visually appealing hide and seek experience.
