- Kirkus Best Children's Books
School Library Journal
“The mixed-media illustrations work masterfully to tell the story alongside the brief text. . . . The impressive use of light and shadow and incorporation of reds, oranges, and purples add a richness to the pages that will transfix children. . . . This amusingly absurd story paired with the warm and wonderful illustrations will have kids coming back again and again.”—starred, School Library Journal
“A small child plays hide-and-seek with a surprisingly elusive (except to viewers) elephant. . . . Beyond the sheer absurdity, children will delight in details. . . . Younger audiences will be screaming ‘There it is!’ from the get-go.”—starred, Kirkus Reviews
