Lucy Cousins, the creator of the fun-loving Maisy, delivers a hide-and-seek picture book filled with jungly, bright die-cuts.
Behind big palm trees and in the jungle brush, Mama JoJo and her little lemur, Jazzy, are busy playing hide-and-seek. Mama can't find Jazzy, but she discovers many other animals in her search! Turning the oversize die-cut pages reveals Anteater hiding behind orange plants, Crocodile and some feathered friends near the tum tum trees, and Tiger and Frog next to the fliff fluff flowers. After meeting many other animals, a smiling Mama wonders, "Oh Baby Jazzy, will I ever find you?" Thankfully for us, she does -- an awesome back-of-the-book trifold reveals the elusive youngster happily hugging his Mama in a tree.
This utterly sweet and sophisticated picture book will have curious toddlers feeling jazzed up about Jazzy! Readers will eagerly search for the lemur along with Mama, combing the vividly colored pages and spotting many exotic animals along the way. Cousins' well-imagined book is beautifully constructed, with layer upon layer of die-cut pages that give stunning depth to her jungle. Hide-and-seek has never been as exciting as it is in this rich and vibrant adventure. Matt Warner
