Peekaboo

Giuliano Ferri. Minedition (IPG, dist.), $11.99 (16p) ISBN 978-988-8240-93-7
Italian artist Ferri proves that the delights of peekaboo transcend language in a near-wordless board book that lets readers play the familiar game with seven animals. Hinged paws, wings, and hooves mask the faces of a fox, pig, hedgehog, owl, and other animals; lifting them to the left and right reveals their wide, friendly eyes and soft smiles. The concept couldn’t be simpler, but the warmth and personality that exude from Ferri’s wonderfully furry and fuzzy portraits give the sense that readers have just made half a dozen new animal friends, while a mirror insert ends the book with a playful surprise. Up to age 3. (Apr.)
