Hide and Seek
Written and Illustrated by Anthony Browne
Age range: 3-8
Welcome to Poppy and Cy’s world of hide and seek, two kids who are missing their dog and need a distraction. While Cy explores the woods for the perfect hiding place, Poppy stays behind to count. Even a simple kid’s game can bring out the best (or worst) of imaginations, yet something wonderful is found at the end. Browne’s wonderful forest scenes set a startling image and is the right setting to be taken out of the comfort zone, but the woods prove to be a place to find a friend and give one a reassurance.
