From the creator of Have You Seen My Dragon? comes a colorful seek-and-find board book for the younger set.
It’s almost time for school, and one small boy’s things are strewn all over. Can he collect everything he needs in time to hop on the bus? Among the missing items are some pink socks, a purple robot, a green book, and more, all waiting to be spotted. Steve Light’s instantly recognizable pen-and-ink illustrations lend themselves impeccably to the board book format, and this eye-catching play on color is the perfect introduction to his stylish work.
Light’s scribbly, detailed drawing style and careful use of color are ideally suited to a seek-and-find story, and this one is equal parts stylish and fun…Through the boy’s busy, messy morning, Light reminds readers that there’s a world of things to see and do before the school day starts. —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Light’s illustrations are filled with lots of details—enough to make spotting each colored object something of a challenge—and adults sharing this with toddlers can easily give them more items to find, match, and count and thereby extend the fun. This may turn the dreaded morning routine into a game, and what could be more welcome than that? —Kirkus Reviews
