Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Papa calls on all the creatures of the jungle to help find his baby in this tender, noisy, and gloriously illustrated game of hide-and-seek.

"Jut-Ay, Baby, peek-a-boo,

Want to play? Where are you?"

Baby knows that Jut-Ay means morning has come, and it's time to play. But where is Baby hiding? Eechy-eechy-egg! crows the red-tailed rooster. Is Baby near? Hru-hruu! Hru-hruu! whines the puppy dog. Is Baby crouching there? Jiak-jiak! Jiak-jiak! screeches a monkey in the banyan tree. Is Baby swinging there? Hornbill and snake, elephant and tiger — who can finally lead Papa to Baby's hiding place?

Synopsis:

From the creators of the Caldecott Honor Book "Hush!" comes this tender, noisy, and gloriously illustrated game of hide-and-seek in which Papa calls on all the creatures in the jungles of Thailand to help find his baby. Full color.

Synopsis:

Jiak jiak! Eechy-eechy-egg! Hru-hruu! Where are you? For the little girl in this delightful read-aloud, the Thai phrase Jut Ay (pronounced like shut and the A in ABC)...means that morning has come, and it's time to play. But where is Baby hiding?

About the Author

Minfong Ho is the author of the Caldecott Honor book HUSH!: A THAI LULLABY as well as many other books for children. She says of PEEK!: A THAI HIDE-AND-SEEK, "As a child in Thailand, I grew up with the game 'Jut-Ay,want to play?' and then enjoyed playing it with my own children. Now I can play it with kids everywhere!"

Holly Meade has illustrated many acclaimed children's books, including

HUSH! A THAI LULLABY by Minfong Ho, BLUE BOWL DOWN: AN APPALACHIAN RHYME by C. M. Millen, and THAT'S WHAT FRIENDS ARE FOR by Florence Parry Heide. She says, "Hiding, peeking, seeking — what child, the world over, doesn't delight in these things? Creating these pictures brought me back to the days when I played such games with my own children, and the happy surprises and hugs they inevitably led to."

A great book to read to your little one who loves to play peek a boo. The illustrations are great and any child will love searching for the little girl in each picture.
