From School Library Journal K-Gr 2-The quirky cow from Millie Waits for the Mail (2007) and Millie in the Snow (2008, both Walker) displays her flair for hide-and-seek in this title. With pigs submerged in tubs and peering out of tractors, chickens stretched out on gutters, and goats under the henhouse, where can Millie hide? The very last place you'd expect, of course-and we'd all like to know just how she climbed that tree in the first place. The next question is how will she get down? Steffensmeier turns a mildly funny story into a feast of hilarity with his pictures of puzzled-but-never-panicked barnyard animals in surprising situations. As in his earlier books, the chickens steal the show, knitting wool scarves, toting the tea things, wearing funny hats, and playing cards in trees. Be sure to watch for the baby chicks making a carousel out of the gramophone. The latest Millie book will make an entertaining addition to any library and provide an outrageously unrealistic lesson on farm life and rescue teams.-Susan Weitz, formerly at Spencer-Van Etten School District, Spencer, NYα(c) Copyright 2013.

From Millie the cow is back, this time taking a game of hide-and-seek to a whole new level—the treetops. The cumulative story builds in anticipation as several of Millie’s friends try to rescue her from her precarious hiding place and instead find themselves in need of help, too. From the suggestive, singe-hued end pages (Millie in various poses, hiding and looking), the illustrations build in action and complexity, offering various perspectives in warm colors. And their format is unpredictable. Millie’s treetop view of the farm is broad and inclusive, over a two-page spread; the pony’s efforts to help are close-ups presented in three panels on a single page. The female farmer adds a positive touch, and the curious chickens are active observers. The story concludes with a whimsical treetop picnic, reflecting a child’s view of how an adventure should end, with even the rescue firefighters enjoying tea and cake. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Edie Ching --This text refers to the edition.
