Another charming rhyming picture book from the celebrated team of Hazel Hutchins and Ruth Ohi.

Jeremy tries to hide among the many toy monsters in his bedroom. But when his father recognizes him, they begin a lovingly simple and repetitious game of verbal hide-and-seek. "If I became a moss green frog
Beside a singing creek,
Like every other moss green frog
That you might ever meet --
If I became a moss green frog,
Would you know me then?"
"I'd know you anywhere," said his father.

Jeremy's playful imagination skips through other possible disguises and hideaways: an octopus beneath the ocean deep; a sheep upon a mountainside; a cloud drifting high above; a single blade of grass in the yard below; a monster dressed in monster clothes.

After each poetic question Jeremy's father replies reassuringly, "I'd know you."

And Jeremy laughs and says, "I'd know you too."

Warm, soft watercolor illustrations depict with gentle humor the many incarnations of Jeremy.

A comforting, reassuring book that children and parents will enjoy reading together.
