This little gem is unfortunately out of print. This book is my daughter's obsession of the moment and I am Peter Spier fan from way back.

The books features a family's trip to the local grocer to get food. While there the daughter hides and one gets to ask "Is she behind the stack of boxes?" NO! "Is she behind the freezer?" NO! naturally, the no part is of great appeal to Ozma. So are the whole page spread of vegetables, fruits and other food. The tiny, crammed full grocery store feels like something you would see in Europe or maybe parts of New York city. It is very much the corner store...not the mega buy mart that most American children today know as a grocery store.

Sorry, KRL library patrons, you cannot find this at your local library. This 1981 import was a lucky find at the Rotary Auction last year. It is part of a series and I wonder if I'll get lucky enough to find the other 'Village Books.'
