Edith Kunhardt, Author Greenwillow Books $12.95 (24p) ISBN 978-0-688-07204-9
The creator of Pat the Cat and Danny's Birthday portrays a loving family, in sunny pastel washes, adjusting to a new baby. Each night during his bath, Peter puts a washcloth on his back and becomes ""invisible.'' His parents search for him, but only when he takes off the washcloth do they ``see'' him again. Once a new baby comes along, Peter feels invisible, but this time he's not playing a game. It's only when baby Abby becomes a little older that Peter finds a way to join in; he puts the washcloth on Abby's back and teaches her the invisible game. A simplicity in the telling and a realistic time frameadjusting to a new baby takes timemake for a quietly persuasive story. Ages 4-up. (March)
