A rollicking family game
On a hot summer day when the sun’s a-blazin’, the chickens are flappin’, the cow’s a-lollin’, and the butter beans need eatin’, Mamaw looks out over her farmyard. One by one, with a crackly swish, Mattie, Li’l Will, Junie May, and even Grampy have left their chores behind and disappeared into the cool green shade of the cornfield. Has everyone been sun-dazzled? As Mamaw tries to find out, she begins her own fun-filled game of hide-and-seek that brings the whole family together in search of her – only to find her where they least expect – in the cornfield herself!
Lively prose and pictures full of hidden details make this a hide-and-seek young readers won’t want to miss.
