Papa calls on all the creatures of the jungle to help find his baby in this tender, noisy, and gloriously illustrated game of hide-and-seek.

"Jut-Ay, Baby, peek-a-boo,
Want to play? Where are you?"

Baby knows that Jut-Ay means morning has come, and it's time to play. But where is Baby hiding? Eechy-eechy-egg! crows the red-tailed rooster. Is Baby near? Hru-hruu! Hru-hruu! whines the puppy dog. Is Baby crouching there? Jiak-jiak! Jiak-jiak! screeches a monkey in the banyan tree. Is Baby swinging there? Hornbill and snake, elephant and tiger — who can finally lead Papa to Baby's hiding place?

A father and daughter play hide-and-seek in the midst of the animals near their house in Thailand.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
A little girl and her father play "Jut-Ay" (pronounced as "Shut" and "A" in ABC), a hide-and-seek game, in this delightful celebration of family love and Thai culture, by the creators of the Caldecott Honor Book, Hush! A Thai Lullaby. The father repeatedly calls out, "Jut-Ay, Baby, peek-a-boo, Want to play? Where are you?" only to be answered instead by a dragonfly ("Swip-swip, swip-swip!"), rooster ("Eechy-eechy-egg, eechy-eechy-egg!), puppy ("Hru-hruu! hru-hruu!"), green-backed turtle, monkey, hornbill, snake, elephant, crocodile, and tiger. The simple, pleasingly repetitive, gracefully-rhyming text, with its Thai-inflected animal sounds, is satisfying to read aloud and should be a popular choice for storytime sharing. The illustrations present a wonderful parade of animals in a lush green jungle setting; on each spread children will have fun locating the hiding little girl, or catching a glimpse of her parasol. Both text and art culminate in the joyously rendered moment when the little girl allows her doting papa to find her at last. 2004, Candlewick, Ages 3 to 6.

School Library Journal
PreS-K-A delightful companion to Ho and Meade's Hush! A Thai Lullaby (Orchard, 1996), this title features a father and daughter playing "Jut-Ay." The setting is once again a lush jungle, but this time the animals' participation is encouraged, rather than discouraged. As Papa searches for his little one, he encounters a variety of noisy creatures and playfully responds to each one: "Jut-Ay, peek-a-boo,/Oh, puppy dog, it's just you!/Sniff behind that rattan chair./Is my baby crouching there?" From the rhymed verses and onomatopoeia to the nearly hidden toddler in each spread, this story is brimming with child appeal. Done in watercolor and cut-paper collage, the exuberant illustrations convey the energy of the high jinks and the girl's satisfaction at being found. Children will want to look for each creature in the final cozy scene. Small groups and individuals alike will enjoy this enticing offering. Pair it with Jose Aruego's We Hide, You Seek (Greenwillow, 1979) and Suse MacDonald's Nanta's Lion (Morrow, 1995) for a storytime of international proportions.-Wendy Lukehart, Washington DC Public Library Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
From the Caldecott Honor-winning team of Hush! A Thai Lullaby (1996), an engaging, repetitive rhyme in which a father asks, "Jut-Ay, want to play?" inviting his young daughter to play peek-a-boo, although she's already begun the game, donning her umbrella, leading the reader over the window sill, outdoors, and into the story. "Jut-Ay, peek-a-boo, is that you?" the father exclaims to each animal he encounters, all while his daughter hides in the background. Onomatopoetic text conveys animal responses to the father's query. The story concludes with the little girl gleefully exclaiming, "I found you!" Father and daughter are face to face, he with her umbrella, she with his straw hat, and an encore appearance of the animals he has met. Meade's watercolor and cut-paper collages are drenched in tropical colors: chartreuse, apricot, bright blue. Curving lines, intersecting planes comprised of juxtaposed textures-a sheer fluttering curtain, wood-slatted blinds, and a woven rattan basket echo the game's energy. Young readers will delight in finding the little girl and her umbrella hiding in each luscious, sun-drenched scene. (Picture book. 3-6)

Meet the Author

Minfong Ho is the author of the Caldecott Honor book HUSH!: A THAI LULLABY as well as many other books for children. She says of PEEK!: A THAI HIDE-AND-SEEK, "As a child in Thailand, I grew up with the game 'Jut-Ay,want to play?' and then enjoyed playing it with my own children. Now I can play it with kids everywhere!"

Holly Meade has illustrated many acclaimed children's books, including
HUSH! A THAI LULLABY by Minfong Ho, BLUE BOWL DOWN: AN APPALACHIAN RHYME by C. M. Millen, and THAT'S WHAT FRIENDS ARE FOR by Florence Parry Heide. She says, "Hiding, peeking, seeking — what child, the world over, doesn't delight in these things? Creating these pictures brought me back to the days when I played such games with my own children, and the happy surprises and hugs they inevitably led to."
