Do You See What I See?

Mathew Price, Author HarperCollins Publishers $7.95 (23p) ISBN 978-0-694-00002-9
As a small boy tries to round up his animal friends for a day at the circus, he finds each of them at home, but engaged in some kind of search. His companion, a small dog with a sharp tongue, follows him from door to door, and finally (with Bear) to the circus. There, all the other animalsan elephant, zebra, monkey, and pigcatch up to them, tickets in handso that's what they were looking for. At the book's end, readers can begin again and search for the tickets, hidden all along in the drawings. It's a clever picture book, with cutout windows that offer a misleading glimpse of the animal on the next page. The illustrations are lively and the small boy determined; the dog's dialogue with himself is amusing and guides children through the illusions. (58)
