Italian artist Ferri proves that the delights of peekaboo transcend language in a near-wordless board book that lets readers play the familiar game with seven animals. Hinged paws, wings, and hooves mask the faces of a fox, pig, hedgehog, owl, and other animals; lifting them to the left and right reveals their wide, friendly eyes and soft smiles. The concept couldn’t be simpler, but the warmth and personality that exude from Ferri’s wonderfully furry and fuzzy portraits give the sense that readers have just made half a dozen new animal friends, while a mirror insert ends the book with a playful surprise. Up to age 3. (Apr.)

Children's Literature - Kristen Klotz
“Peekaboo,” the classic children’s game, gets an animal twist in this interactive, wordless picture book. Turn the pages of the book to reveal an animal covering his or her face. Lift the flap to reveal the animal, and peekaboo! Toddlers and young children will jump at the chance to play peekaboo with this book. Children will find a bear behind the first set of paws and a fox behind the second. Oink, oink, next comes the pig followed by a spotted dog. A squirrel and owl are hiding on the last two animal pages. Each of the illustrations shows the animals tail, which could encourage children to play a guessing game. The last page has two human hands as flaps covering a mirror for the children to find themselves. The illustrations are detailed with soft colors. This would be a great interactive and engaging book to read with toddlers and young children. Reviewer: Kristen Klotz; Ages 1 to 3.

Infants and toddlers are invited to engage in a game of peekaboo with an assortment of cuddly critters. Though no words appear until the final pages, children will know just what to do here. Each right-hand page features an animal covering its eyes with its paws or wings. Instinctively, little ones will move these paws and wings, which are large, sturdy flaps, to find themselves playing peekaboo with a bear, fox, pig, dog, cat, porcupine, and owl. The animals are beautifully rendered in watercolor with fastidious attention to detail. Ferri has skillfully bestowed each character with a distinctive expression, though they all appear gentle and a little amused to be playing this game. The stark white backgrounds work well, as they keep the focus on the animals and the peekaboo action. The final pages provide a small surprise and an additional interactive opportunity; Caucasian hands cover a mirror, and accompanying text reads: "Peekaboo! Is it YOU?" Simple and lovely, this interactive offering would make a delightful addition to any board-book collection for infants and toddlers. (Board book. 1-3)
