Two animal friends play a game of hide and seek in this third picture book in a charming series from Emily Gravett. Bear and Hare are playing hide and seek! Hare counts to ten. Bear hides, but Hare finds him quickly. Again. And then again! But when Bear counts–1…2…3 all the way to 10–Hare hides. Will Bear find Hare? Will Hare find Bear? Told and illustrated with Emily Gravett’s characteristic flair, this picture book for young readers is the perfect companion for friends of all sorts.
Emily Gravett was born in Brighton, England, the second daughter of a printmaker and an art teacher. She left school at 16 and travelled the UK for eight years, living in a big green bus with her partner and their daughter. After returning to Brighton to take up an art degree, Emily sprang into the limelight with the ground-breaking Wolves in 2005, which won her the Macmillan Prize for Illustration, followed by a book deal and the first of her Kate Greenaway Medals. Wolves was followed by such brilliant modern classics as Orange Pear Apple Bear, Little Mouse’s Big Book of Fears, Again! and the exquisite Tidy. Each book is unique and different from the last – and each features endearing, beautifully drawn characters that touch the heart and tickle the funny bone. Emily now lives in Brighton with her family. When not working in her studio, she might be found walking the dog, watering the tomatoes or driving the family’s restored 1960s bus.
