About the Author:

From Booklist:

Reviewed with Tomie dePaola's Hide-and-Seek All Week.

Gr. 1-2. The Barkers series features twin dogs Moffie and Morgie, who dress and act like elementary school children. Boss reveals that "Moffie liked being the boss. After all, she was ten minutes older than Morgie." So practiced are they in their roles that even when Moffie announces that Morgie will be the boss for a day, Morgie finds that he doesn't know how to make things go his way. And though she thinks she's being submissive, Moffie often takes charge. Hide-and-Seek follows a group of classmates through a week of recesses, which they spend deciding on the rules of hide-and-seek, rather than playing the game. Here dePaola captures the seemingly interminable negotiation that is a crucial part of children's play. Well grounded in their observation of child behavior, these stories feature believable characters and situations familiar to children. Expressive drawings, textured with patterns and lit with glowing color underscore the rueful humor of the stories. Carolyn Phelan
