Andy and Sam: Hide-and-Seek

Liesbet Slegers, Author . EDC/Kane Miller $14.99 (32p) ISBN 978-1-935279-35-8

In this Dutch import, a boy named Andy invites readers to help him find his cat, Sam, who is sometimes “a bit naughty” and likes to hide. The search starts in the house and backyard, before moving to locales like the beach, zoo, and even the sky. Andy describes each scene (“The farm is a very busy place. Chicken, cows, horses, sheep.... They're all my friends!”) while prompts at the bottom of each spread ask readers to find various objects and animals. The sunny cartoons and enthusiastic child narrator make this an especially inviting diversion. Ages 2–5. (Mar.)
