Where is Fred? is a picturebook written by Edward Hardy and illustrated by Ali Pye. This picturebook takes readers along on a game of hide and seek as Fred, a fuzzy white caterpillar hides from Gerald the Crow to avoid becoming lunch. Fred blends in to the background in a variety of places as Gerald hunts for him, allowing readers to spot him in the droll illustrations even when Gerald cannot.

Where is Fred? is a fun picturebook that will make young readers laugh while allowing them to play hide

My five-year-old son picked this book out from the library this week.

This was a pretty adorable book. My son enjoyed spotting Fred the caterpillar when Gerald the crow couldn't. Fred did make a fabulous scarf, but he might not want to stay as Gerald's bow-tie very long.

My son and I read this book today. He found it easy to read out loud and thought it was very funny. We both made up voices for the characters. It had a nice funny ending. The pictures were lovely too.

Beautiful imagery. Eye candy and layout of words is very fun. The end of the book is as funny as it is sweet.

I'm not someone who regularly reads picture books not having small children of my own but I received a couple for review this week and this was one of them.

I loved Where is Fred. The pictures are beautiful and the story is really funny and I think it is one of those books which adults will enjoy as much as the kids they are reading with.
