This story describes the life in a day of a toddler named Tilly. Her parents hide various ordinary objects from her which she "seeks" and deems as her "treasure". This banter back and forth between Tilly and her parents with "hide and seek" is cute and the ending is sweet as well. Tilly's parents find her at the end of the story and deem her their treasure.

This book is cute, I guess, although it is a little hard to see the illustrations. But it is not especially good, clever, or original.

the pictures are too small

It's not the usual criticism, I know, but if you're reading it and holding it for a young one to share, you don't want to juggle a magnifying glass as well. Go bigger!
I thought this book was cute, but there was not a lot of context in the book.

This book was really great, and I loved the cute stories about the girl who tryed to find all kinds of things around in her house and everywhere. I used this book for an activity with two-years old children, but I think this book had a little bit too small pictures for it to be interesting for the children. So after that experience, I would recommend this book for older children. The book was great, but again, a little bit to small pictures.

Real cute. I love the ordinary, daily things in the illustrations and the story. I also love that it's modern. Both the mom and dad wear cargo shorts on a picnic. (: Just gentle, loving family life, complete with messes. Nice story.

Tilly does love treasure-hunting - and so does her family. I loved finding her cute blue bunny rabbit throughout the pages, but otherwise I found the illustations a little, well, 'messy' to see easily. Better for a 3-4 year old than 2.

This is a fun one for toddlers who are in the hide-and- seek stage. A little girl's parents hide her favorite things for her to find, her treasures. Dainty pastel drawings with lots of detail lead us through her wanderings.

I loved the illustrations! My daughter loved the detail of each illustration once she realized it things were hidden. We had to go back and reread until she too had found each treasure. Thanks a ton goodreads!!

Parent/ child story of treasure hunts the parents create for the toddler. Good illustrations, but not for library storytimes.
Cute. Tillie likes to find things, so her parents play along and hide "treasures" for her to discover. Adorable little girl.

This wasn't real popular and I think the appeal is more for the parent. Pictures are really too small for groups.
I think Henry liked the thought of the treasure hunt but the illustrations were lacking in imagination.

Adorable, sweet story, with a few things for readers to search for in the illustrations.

I was looking for Baby Catalog, and got this instead. Still a fun read.
A nice choice for toddler or baby storytimes

Allan Ahlberg, one of the most acclaimed and successful authors of children's books - including the best-selling Jolly Postman series - says that he dreamed of becoming a writer since the age of twelve. But his route to that goal was somewhat circuitous.

Other jobs along the way included postman (not an especially jolly one, he recalls), gravedigger, plumber, and teacher.

The author wrote his firs
