Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
When Dad puts the chocolate chip cookies in the oven to bake, he and his son-and their pet dog-have just enough time for a game of hide-and-seek. As Dad (the seeker) calls out each number from one to nine, the boy and dog audition various hiding places around the house. At "3," a big box is considered, then abandoned at the count of "4" as too effective ("Hide doesn't mean hide the whole day"). The boy vetoes the pet's choice of a garbage can at "5" ("You want to stink?"). Finally, as Dad sounds "9," the pair burrows under the pillows "in the great big bed"-although it's hard to stay hidden when the oven timer goes "Bing!" Wong, who collaborated with Chodos-Irvine on Buzz and Apple Pie Fourth of July, contributes a few well-chosen words to each page. But this is really the illustrator's show. Once again, Chodos-Irvine works magic with a printmaking style that produces bold, high-contrast shapes resembling cut paper. Her sense of composition is faultless; she picks just the right angle to make the most of a hiding place's assets. And while she favors big, solid forms, she seems to revel in energizing them (she's especially good at capturing the dog's restlessness). Youngsters will love seeing how the hero's deductive reasoning garners him both a cool hiding place and a tasty reward. Ages 2-5. (Apr.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

PreS-K-While Dad's cookies bake, he and his son play a game of hide-and-seek. He counts from 1 to 10 as the boy and his dog look for a good place to hide-perhaps under the sink, or behind a tree, or in a box. "Hide-and-seek means/squeeze yourself small,/roll yourself tight/into a ball-." They finally settle under the covers on the big bed, and Dad begins to hunt for them. The game ends when the oven bell rings and the treats are ready to eat. The book is attractively designed, and children will enjoy finding something to count on each page or spread as they anticipate "Ready or not, here I come!" However, locating a few of the objects may require some adult assistance. Chodos-Irvine uses a variety of printmaking techniques in warm and contrasting colors. The bright, colorful shapes are large and interesting enough to capture attention. Suitable for storytimes or one-on-one listening, this title will find a niche in counting-book collections.-Angela J. Reynolds, Washington County Cooperative Library Services, Hillsboro, OR Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
"Cookie time is the perfect time for hide-and-seek. Dad, don't peek!" While the cookies are baking and Dad is counting to ten, a lad searches for the perfect hiding place-hindered by a canine companion: "No, not the trash can-you want to stink? / It might be okay to hide under the sink. . . . " Big figures set off by white borders in Chodos-Irvine's saturated colors for silkscreen-style scenes as boy and dog hunt through house and yard, trying and rejecting one possible hidey-hole after another, finding a place just as Dad reaches "Ten!," then waiting for the oven's "Bing!" to emerge and to chow down. Wong's poetic count creates a yummy, intimate addition to the host of other hide-and-seeks, from Leslea Newman's Where Is Bear?, illus by Valeri Gorbachev (2004), on down. (Picture book. 4-6)
