From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 1-- Using the same vibrant acrylics and meticulous designs found in Magic Fan (1989) and Who Is the Beast? (1990, both HBJ), Baker creates a visual game of hide and seek featuring a rainbow-striped reptile. The playful snake slithers through colorful assortments of yarn, hats, cats, cakes, clocks, socks, baskets, shoe laces , and "many places." Readers are invited to trace the creature's movements through its mosaic adventure--a challenging task since its multichromatic appearance allows it to blend in with the decorative surroundings. A simple rhyming text announces the reptile's destinations. Each new site is portrayed in a bright, boldly outlined double-page spread. Thematically, this title isn't as ambitious or weighty as the artist's earlier efforts, but it is no less successful or delightful. A great choice for those children wanting a little interactive play with their books. --Heide Piehler, Shorewood Public Library, WI
