Synopsis: Book by Kunhardt, Edith
From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 2 In a game of pretend that is a nightly ritual, Peter ``disappears'' when he puts a washcloth on his back. When Peter's new baby sister is big enough to bathe in the big bathtub, Peter introduces the game to her. The story seems like an anecdote, and although it is lovingly told, one feels that it's essentially a private story and ``you had to be there.'' The story depends on the illustrations to convey that Peter has not actually disappeared but is sitting in the tub while his parents are searching for him, an approach which may be too abstract for very young children. The simplicity of the illustrations match the tale without overwhelming its gentle quality. Sepia line drawings filled with watercolor give the work a flat, almost naive quality. The story has charm, but in a field crowded with stories in which an older child learns to accept and share with a new baby, this is a marginal addition. Eleanor K. MacDonald, Beverly Hills Public Library
