This book is fantastic to read aloud, especially when you get to the final two pages: Who’s who? Children learn the names of animals, to recognise expressions, colours, and how to count.

Who’s hiding? Who’s crying? Who’s backwards? Look carefully! Is it dog, tiger, hippo, zebra, bear, reindeer, kangaroo, lion, rabbit, giraffe, monkey, bull, rhino, pig, sheep, hen, elephant, or cat?


Satoru Onishi was born in 1955. He studied art in Tokyo, Japan, and now works as a professional illustrator.


In this [almost] wordless gem, 12 animals provide opportunities to pick (and remember) who’s hiding, crying, has got horns or is seen backwards.

For the very small, the year’s best book.

The Listener

A little gem of (not overly) cutesy Japanese graphic design, which asks about the animals that are illustrated in a simple question and answer format.
