Who's Wearing Sunglasses?

Donald Smith, Author, Smith, Author Dial Books $2.95 (12p) ISBN 978-0-8037-0399-5
Four Peek Through board books have cutouts in the shapes of baseball caps, bow ties, sneakers and sunglasses. After wondering if the missing object is on the owl (or camel, toucan, walrus, squirrel or other animal), the young narrator admits to having had the item all along. The illustrations, though bold, are not particularly striking, and there isn't a clear concept herethe cutouts give way to a barrage of only sometimes fun ideas, like a porcupine with sunglasses on. In fact, that book works the best of the four. But this collection is best sold in pieces, since they all end on the same note. Ages 1-5. (March)
