KIRKUS REVIEW

 One of four appealing new board books by a gifted British artist whose vibrant toddlers are almost as sharply observed as her mother Shirley Hughes's. Here, bright-eyed tykes of various hues pop out from behind a hat, a tree, or a curtain in classic peekaboo tradition, with a simple rhymed couplet on each spread (``Who's there/under that chair?) plus the anticipated ``Boo!'' that's sure to invoke a giggle. Pleasing details (diminutive toys, fabric patterns) add interest. The genre at its best: basic simplicity enriched by organization and added features that instruct while they delight. Also available: Bang and Shout (ISBN 1-56402-409-1); Blue Hat Red Coat (1-56402-361-3); Yum Yum! (1- 56402-408-3). (Picture book. 0-3)
