Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Known in Israel for her thoughtful novels for young adults, Bergman here proves herself equally adept at relating to young children.” Booklist, ALA
Publishers Weekly
In this cheerful square volume from an Israeli team, Modan's (The Shell of Secrets) art takes center stage, elevating Bergman's (The Boy from Over There) minimal narrative-a play on hide-and-seek-and revealing secrets to which youngsters will relish being privy. Intricate patterns (on wallpaper, rugs, fabrics) counterpoint the feline characters' stark portraits in fine black outline with pleasingly flat planes of color. The art initially depicts young Noni's musings about where his mother goes after she drops him off at his grandparents' home (her office as a veterinarian, the gym, a flower shop buying blooms for his grandmother are among the choices). But the fun begins when she returns and Noni disappears. What readers do know-though Noni's mother doesn't-are his hiding places as his parent searches for her elusive child. Here the complex patterns and design serve as camouflage for the young hero, as aerial and close-up views allow readers to search various rooms along with Noni's mother. A hilarious picture of the woman searching for her child "behind Grandma's apron" (Noni's tail exits the right-hand side of the picture) delivers a knowing wink to the audience. Ages 4-8. (Sept.) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
All children enjoy a game of Hide-and-Seek. In this playfully illustrated and simply written story originally published in Israel, Noni (a cat) imagines where his Mommy might be once she drops him off at his Grandma's and Grandpa's. Perhaps she is seeing patients in her doctor's office, or working out at the gym or having a glass of lemonade with Noni's uncle? The real fun begins when Mommy returns, however. It is Noni's turn to hide and Mommy's turn to seek now. Noni hides in child-familiar places—under a patio chair, behind a bedroom curtain, in an unlit tool shed and eventually in a hamper. Young readers will enjoy the game and feel oh, so smart when they find Noni in his hiding places. The ending is both inevitable yet surprising: Daddy arrives home to seek and find Noni and Mommy. The winner of the Best Illustrated Children's Book award from the Israel Museum in Jerusalem in 2000, the book's pictures suggest an unusual cat family in an unusual, possibly Mediterranean, setting. The patterned backgrounds, reminiscent of collage art, and the use of bright colors add to the book's visual appeal. Mommy's Doctor chart displays the Hebrew spellings of body parts, and a spot illustration offers an Israeli newspaper, but neither unfamiliar item lessens the delight of this story for very young readers who are too busy seeking. In fact, observant young readers will become that much smarter. 2002, Houghton Mifflin,
— Esther Hershenhorn
School Library Journal
PreS-K-Despite a familiar premise and potentially appealing details, this odd import from Israel falls flat. Noni, a kitten, wonders where his mother is going after she drops him off to stay with his grandparents. Various possibilities are imagined and pictured-did she go to work (she appears to be a doctor) or to the gym? To drink lemonade with Uncle Yuri or to buy flowers for his grandmother? Noni never finds out. But when Mom returns, he turns the tables on her and hides, leaving her wondering about and searching for him. Childlike illustrations with flattened perspectives, bold patterns, and unusual colors give this book a quirky look. Unfortunately, they also make it difficult to see what is happening at times. Amusing touches, like Grandma's mouse slippers or the unique lineup of patients waiting to be seen, can't compensate for the overall awkwardness of the art. Bergman's brief text seems flat and predictable, with no real sense of playfulness or suspense. While the activities shown may be familiar, the presentation is lackluster and will likely leave readers wondering "why?" and not really caring "where?"-Lisa Dennis, The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, PA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
