KIRKUS REVIEW

A mostly incomprehensible lift-the-flap tale featuring characters from the Lalaloopsy line of rag dolls.

A few of the dolls, such as Peanut Big Top and Mittens Fluff ’n’ Stuff, enjoy a hide-and-seek session with their “little sisters.” The dolls take turns hiding in various spots, including treehouses, a Ferris wheel and a school. Readers are implicitly invited to search for the dolls behind various easy-to-open flaps, which reveal the hidden characters and other objects. The art, which looks to be digital, recreates two-dimensional images of the dolls and places them in a world that resembles a Candy Land board. The dolls, with their oversized button eyes and signature cutesy outfits, may be easy for devotees to recognize, but readers unfamiliar with the franchise will be lost as to who is who. How and why the dolls play hide-and-seek on a Ferris wheel or in the middle of the road in front of a school bus is as mystifying as the rest of the book.

For rabid Lalaloopsy fans only. (Board book. 3-5)
