Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

PW noted the "elaborate acrylic designs, variety of lush hues and sly wit" in this hide-and-seek adventure with a crafty reptile. Ages 3-8.
Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc.

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

I bought this for my great grandaughter.

It is one of the few books that keep him so interested that he often wants us to go through it several times each sitting.

Our boy Alex loves this book, even at a year and a half old. He frequently picks it out of a stack of books and brings it to us to read to him. We spend a lot of time on each page so that he can find the snake's head. The pictures are beautifully colored and filled with lots of curious details. It is one of the few books that keep him so interested that he often wants us to go through it several times each sitting. I highly recommend this book.

Easy enough for the youngest children, this book also provides a nice challenge for older toddlers and preschoolers to find where the snake is hiding. The rhymes make it easy to read and are good practice for little ears. The artwork is interesting and quite detailed. My son, now 3, has had his copy since he was a baby and still loves it.

Format: Board book
This is a pretty book with nice illustrations and short, easy rhymes. I don't think it's that interesting but when I returned a copy to the library I noticed that my 16 month-old daughter kept asking for the "snake" book so I'm going to buy a copy. The illustrations have very similar colors on every page so I think it's a little difficult for kids under two to pick out what's pictured, but as I said, my daughter likes it.

Format: Paperback
A very colorful snake that has the abilility to hide is some pretty strange and unique places makes this an ideal book to read with your child and join in the game of find the snake. The author and artist Keith Baker does have quite an imagination and does have skill. The colorful snake is hidden in different settings, and the object of the book is to find the snake. the drawings/paintings are extremely detailed. Children do enjoy this one which is a pretty good endorsement for any children's book. The cute and percise rhymes which the text consists of, help the child to develope a feel for word patterns. The book is easy to read and is not at all boring, even after dozens and dozens of readings. The reason for this is the unique places the snake is hidden. With a bit of imagination, an adult can get quite a conversation going using just the background art in this one. this is certainly one you will want to add you your young child's library. Simply a delightful book.

Format: Hardcover
This book would be good even if it were only the challenge of finding the cleverly-hidden snake in each picture. But on a third read, I noticed that there are some visual gags and subtleties to be found that will keep older readers (like my teenage daughter and myself!) searching the pictures as much as the toddler or small child they're reading to. Keep your eyes open, and read the book again!
