I buy thousands of kid’s books a year, and, generally, I love them all. Every now and then, a picture book leaps out of the crowd and says “I’m Special!” This is such a book. Where’s the Baboon? is billed on its cover with “It’s a book!” “It’s a game!” and it is a little of each. The characters are an oddly dissimilar group of animals, one of whose names is hidden in a question on each page. As you’re enjoying the funny pictures and questions, you’re also solving each page’s mystery. There are clues for each question, but don’t give the answer away – kids will discover the clues on their own. Fun for any age!
