Review:
Simon and Molly, the winsome best friends in this modest, highly appealing story, are next door neighbors. They play together every day. But when their game of choice -- hide-and seek -- loses its suspenseful fun because Molly is “too easy to find,” the heroine comes up with “the best hiding idea ever.” Both Simon and young viewer/listeners are temporarily bamboozled, but all comes right in the end. The author-artist’s brightly colored, uncluttered pictures make a perfect accompaniment for the simple – but never condescending – text.
