‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

Who's Hiding? is an interactive book with simple cartoon animals created by Japanese artist Satoru Onishi. This picture book requires children to look closely at each spread to find out which of the 18 different characters is hiding, crying, sleeping, angry, sleeping etc. At the beginning of the book all the animals are named. The first pages are strong primary colours, but then the colours get more complex as the book progresses and every double page has a little subtle change.
As well as playing Who’s Hiding, the book is useful for colour recognition, counting and identifying the different expressions on the faces of the animals. Even when everything is removed, a pair of eyes on a black page manages to convey individuality. This is an ideal for the very young, but older children will enjoy this as a game too.
