From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-- In this witty little game of hide and seek, Billy thinks he has lost his beetle. In each double-page spread, readers see the creature walking on the boy's pant leg, along his shoulder, or some other less-than-easy-to-spot place. Like Chicken Little, Billy acquires an entourage of helpers who join in the search with equally poor results. Finally the hedgehog finds the beetle, but by this time Billy has quietly disappeared with a furry caterpillar, and the hunt resumes with a new focus. Delicately drawn figures in pale colors appear against a white background, with only a bit of shading under the feet. The last page unfolds to give a panoramic view of all the characters. Evocative language will have readers and listeners eager to help the story with their own sounds (``sniffy dog,'' ``oompah band,'' and even an ``untrumpetable'' elephant). A merry little tale best shared with just a few children at a time. --Ruth Semrau, Lovejoy School, Allen, TX
