KIRKUS REVIEW

Harry the hippo plays hide-and-seek.

It's a bright and sunny day, and the local kids are playing on the playground. It's Harry's turn to hide, but it's pretty easy to spot a hippopotamus no matter how well he hides. Little ones will delight at the odd places Harry chooses to conceal himself, and parents will be equally entertained. Harry’s a typical child, clearly believing that closing his eyes makes him invisible, even when he hangs in plain view from the top bar of a swing set. Harrison's warm, round illustrations make for an excellent introduction to the "spot the item" genre, and pleasingly, there’s almost no way children will find themselves frustrated by the challenge. A similar title, Hide and Seek Harry on the Farm, publishes simultaneously.

A brightly lit "find it" game that focuses more on laughs than skill. (Board book. 2-3)
