"An elegant picture book in which simple shapes and succinct story
express big ideas. Here a game of hide-and-seek makes us consider,
for starters, fear of strangers, the power of the imagination,
being brave and standing by friends." * The Sunday Times *
"Clever and extremely funny." * The Bookseller, Children's March Previews *
"[...] every bit as funny and stylish as its predecessors." * Mini Travellers *
"This is a lovely book to read at bedtime. The use of shapes as characters really keeps children engaged, and the mystery towards the end of the book encourages children to use their imagination. Even as an adult I found myself wanted to know more about what was going on! I didn't expect a mystery in a children's picture book!" * Me, Him, The Dog, And the Baby *
