Is it a game? Is it a story book? It’s a bit of both and whole lot of fun. Animals are up to all sorts in these muted spreads showing school scenes. It’s up to the reader to find the hidden words and the lurking animals that make the answer. ‘Who can count to a ThOusAnD?’ The toad of course! Children will love spotting the words within the words, and the stylish illustrations offer clues to help. But where is the Baboon that the cover promised? It’s a big surprise – but you’ll have to wait for his explosive entrance!
A fun premise is paired with quirky illustration in this unusual book. It could inspire a word hide-and-seek game of your own. The tall format is striking and the paper is thick and luxurious. A fun little book for an inquisitive child!
