Product Details


Readers will feel as though they’re in the thick of the fun thanks to the exclamations and exhortations that punctuate the narration, as well as the inviting energy of the sunny-hued pictures, which give the familiar rhythms and tensions of the game delicious immediacy. A page doesn’t go by without a wonderful moment: in one round of the game, the toddler announces her presence by dropping peas, one by one, onto Buster’s head.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

In a rhythmic text and lively art, a classic friendship story plays out through an extended game of hide-and seek between a baby and a small white dog named Buster…Digitally rendered crayon and paint illustrations contrast soft pastel colors with high-energy line work. Buster and the baby are delightfully expressive throughout this thrilling game of chase.
—Horn Book

The unbreakable bond between a child and a dog is explored in this simple yet touching book…Pencil-and-watercolor illustrations bring the characters to life while maintaining a soft and calming mood to make this a delightful bedtime story.
—School Library Journal

An amusing tale with heart that preschoolers will enjoy.
—Kirkus Reviews
