From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1AA breezy, bold, and energetic book. A simple text describes a game of chase: a dog follows a cat, a bug pursues a bee, two squirrels run around a tree, and a round-faced child calls out, "And someone's chasing me!" In the end, the animals are all caught by their pursuers, and a mother appears on the final page to catch the youngster in a loving embrace. Litzinger's cheerful paintings carry the book. Strong colors fill the pages and lots of movement reinforces the action. Many elements of the illustrations embellish, yet echo, the spare story, including the simple humor in the hiding and chasing scenes (the bee bottom-up inside a rose). Simple shapes such as triangles, circles, and oblongs mold the characters and landscape (bulgy eyes; a round hat; and triangles for faces, paws, and ears). The repetitive text and basic vocabulary could be managed by early independent readers or read aloud to toddlers. Fanciful and lively.AJacqueline Elsner, Athens Regional Library, GA
