Publisher Comments:

Meet three adorable best friends from debut author/illustrator talent with a huge Etsy following

Oliver, Charlie, and Lulu love to play outside together. Their favorite game is hide-and-seek, but it's not fun for Oliver when his friends hide in the trees — he can't reach them! So the friends set off to find a tree that Oliver can play in.

But there's a reason we don't see elephants in trees, and just when Oliver is ready to give up the search, Charlie and Lulu surprise him with the perfect tree for them all to play in together!

Review:

"Illustrator Chase debuts with a sweet yet tightly constructed story of friendship and ingenuity. Lulu (a bird), Charlie (a rabbit), and Oliver (an elephant) are playing hide and seek in the forest. But Oliver's girth puts him at a competitive disadvantage: his friends can hide in trees and he can't. 'It's hopeless!' says the elephant, walking away in frustration and embarrassment. 'Elephants just don't belong in trees!' Oliver's friends are determined to include him, however, and with some clever planning and sweat equity, they build a brilliant and fully accessible tree house out of a stump that's 'Perfect for all of us!' Chase's crisp, chipper narration never attempts to manipulate readers' feelings, and her restraint, combined with her subtly expressive characters and the elegant prettiness of her watercolor and ink drawings, lends the book a distinctly British lilt that inoculates it against treacliness. The 'Awww' that will all but inevitably accompany the final scene — a rousing game of pirate pretend play — is thoroughly deserved. Ages 3 – 5. Agent: Teresa Kietlinski, Prospect Agency."

About the Author

Kit Chase is a freelance artist and writer who is perhaps best known for leaving behind trails of broken pencils, eraser fragments, chewed pens, and scraps of scribbled paper. She is the founder and imaginator for LullaLoo, LLC, which operates out of trafalgarssquare.com. Kit resides in sunny Southern California with her sidekick husband, three rollicking children, and a rowdy corgi. She dreams of someday having a backyard full of climb-worthy trees. This is her first book.
