Grover wants to play hide and seek with you and he's going to hide. He tries hiding everywhere, but hiding in a white book when you're bright blue can be difficult. This book is just plain fun and very cute. It also has an ending that would be an entertaining way to talk to kids about manners and lying, depending on how the parent or guardian wants to interpret the ending.

This is a fun one that isn't maybe quite as good as Monster at the End of This Book, but you can't blame it for that. It's well-done in the same interactive format that plays with the fourth wall, and the end is "aww" heartwarming.

A lot of fun to read with an engaged preschooler or toddler. Almost as wonderful as The Monster at the End of this Book.

This book is right up there with Grover's There's a Monster at the End of This Book. That one's awesome, and this one is too.

I like the way (if the read aloud person does his/her job right) the person listening to the story gets to interact with Grover. FUN!

Grover was always one of my favorite Sesame Street characters. In this very silly book, lovable, furry old Grover tries to hide from you within the pages while you (or your child) count to ten before trying to find him, a great book for young children!

From my personal library...this is a great interactive bedtime story. Abby didn't want to count to 10, though, to give Grover a chance to hide...so we haven't finished it yet :-)

On par with The Monster At The End of this Book. I loved this when I was young.
