A beautiful picture book shot through with a touch of magic since Daisy, the cow in question, can change colour. In fact, she’s more of a chameleon than a cow. Young readers will enjoy finding Daisy in all the unlikely places she can hide. But what happens when she’s with all the other cows? Luckily, Daisy knows a way of always being noticed!


Daisy Plays Hide-and-seek by Ellie Sandall

Daisy is a very special cow. Like a chameleon, she can take on the colours of the things around her, which makes her extremely good at playing hide and seek. Will her friend Jake be able to find her? Will you?

About the Author

Ellie Sandall

Ellie Sandall loved drawing from an early age and has a passion for picture books (she keeps her collection in a huge wardrobe in her studio!) After competing a degree in Graphic Design at Bath Spa University, she became interested in drawing and writing specifically for children, and went on to achieve a Master's degree in Children's Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art. As a child, her favourite picture book was The Very Hungry Caterpillar, and she still loves the work of Eric Carle. In her spare time Ellie loves to get stuck into some DIY or go out in her kayak, and she dreams of one day owning her very own sausage dog. Everybunny Dance is her fifth picture book.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.
