KIRKUS REVIEW

Once a little girl named Janey liked to play Hide and Seek. She was not very good at hiding and she was not very good at seeking. But she was very good at finding fleecy castles in the clouds and goblin faces in the dark."" This, on the last page, precisely recapitulates the story and suggests why it will have little appeal for kids: nobody likes an all-time loser or a child who doesn't play the game. As drawn--light olive, blue, black--there are knights hiding in the clouds, gnomes to seek under the porch. They might be worth finding if it would get you anywhere.
