Synopsis

Where's the Baboon? by Michael Escoffier

Step right up, fearless readers! Today, in this very book, we will PROVE to you that a snake can hide in a snowflake, that pigs can paint, and that the ones who copy the most are not necessarily cats! Prepare to be AMAZED by the game of hide-n-seek the words play! These tricksters are true experts in the art of camouflage! Michael Escoffier's inspired word-within-a-word game combined with the fantastic animal-packed art of Kris Di Giacomo make every page turn irresistable.

Reviews

Kids will enjoy searching for answers in both words and pictures, not to mention the surprise at the story's end. The muted colors of Di Giacomo's illustrations complement each scene's subtle humor (a seagull reading Jonathan Livingston, for instance), and all works together beautifully to unify language, picture, and story. Booklist, starred review Esoffier and Di Giacomo appear to have another hit on their hands ... Wordplay and fun-what's not to like? Book Page As the cover art teases, this is both a game and a riddle book, with clever illustrations providing clues ... In a word: outstanding. Kirkus, starred review Exploding with fun, this is absolutely perfect for sharing... Totally engaging in every respect Red Reading Hub
