HAVE YOU SEEN GORDON?
SIMON & SCHUSTER BOOKS FOR YOUNG READERS (2021)
Packed with vibrant and dizzying artwork, this hilarious story cleverly riffs on classic seek-and-find books and will have young ones laughing out loud as the narrator struggles to get the characters to play along.
Have you seen Gordon? Oh. There he is. Gordon isn’t very good at hiding, is he?
The narrator wants to play hide and seek with Gordon and the reader, but Gordon just wants to stand out. This madcap, fourth wall–breaking picture book is packed with humor and full, zany spreads with details kids will return to again and again.
"It’s a culturally relevant meta-spoof that raises big questions about authority and autonomy, allyship and consent... It also succeeds wholly in the seek-and-find genre; while readers catch their breath from the high-energy character wrangling, they can pore over a wonderfully wide-ranging supply of visual jokes (e.g. poop as fine art) en route to the book’s sweetly affirming end." -- Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVEW
"Riotously written and wittily illustrated with plenty of details for kids to savor, this charmer will keep readers laughing and looking. Seek no more for words to describe this winner: a standout!"
-- Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW
