And as the story unfolds, very young children can spy familiar nursery characters hiding in the colorful pictures. There's Tom Thumb, Jack and Jill, and the Three Bears, as well as Baby Bunting and a host of others. A marvellously entertaining romp for the youngest reader.
Searle, Cornell University
Play the game of hide-and-seek with Cinderella, the Three Bears, Jack and Jill, in this cunningly devised rhyming picture book. 'Tom Thumb in the cupboard/ I spy Mother Hubbard...' Can you see her in the picture? (0 - 3 yrs) (Kirkus UK)
The Ahlberg penchant for playing with nursery characters (Jeremiah in the Dark Woods, 1978) has issue this time in a more traditional, pastoral-pretty nursery book. "Each Peach Pear Plum/ I spy Tom Thumb," reads the first couplet (of what was originally a counting-out rhyme), while opposite Tom sits half-hidden in a tree; "Tom Thumb in the cupboard/ I spy Mother Hubbard" shows him in plain sight and - look sharp! - only her posterior, looming in the picture's corner. And so it goes, with a new character named - and cleverly half-concealed - at each of the openings. Youngsters will enjoy spying them out and appreciate their comical faces until at the finale - "Plum Pie in the sun/ I spy. . . EVERYONE!" - they all spring out from concealment and sit down to a picnic feast. Once you've seen it, true, there are no surprises but, for the very young, there's another sort of satisfaction from knowing what's coming next. (Kirkus Reviews)
