A hilarious new picture book from author of The Suitcase, Chris Naylor-Ballesteros!
Frank and Bert are the best of friends and they LOVE playing hide-and-seek. But Bert the bear isn't quite as good at hiding as he thinks he is . . . and Frank ALWAYS wins! Every. Single. Time.
But when it's Bert's turn to hide, and Frank has to decide between winning again OR making his friend happy, Frank learns that friendship is always the true winner. This interactive and entertaining story about friendship is guaranteed to get children giggling!
About the Author
Chris is originally from Bradford, UK and studied illustration and graphic design at Bradford College of Art. In 2000 he moved to France where, among other things, he was an English teacher before working in newspaper layout and design.
When his children were small he realized he loved the picture books he read to them, sometimes even more than his children did — the Picture Book Bug had truly bitten.
Chris has since written and illustrated several books and is currently thinking about the next one, probably with a cup of tea in hand at home near Limoges, France.
"An uplifting and eye-catching tale in which being a good friend trumps winning every time."—Kirkus
Engaging characters, kind friends, a game of hide-and-seek, and some playful fourth wall-breaking make for an excellent read-aloud; this is highly recommended.—School Library Journal
A fun, interactive read, with jolly colored-pencil illustrations, plot twists, and a clear message about friendship.—Connie Fletcher, Booklist
