2009 Award
Where's Tumpty?
(by Polly Dunbar, Walker Books $12.99 Score:)

Welcome Tilly and friends, a new series for for big toddlers. In this story Tumpty, a blue elephant, has decided to hide by closing his eyes. He does not seem to understand that others can see him even if he cannot see them. Kids will need to be able to make that leap in order to see the humor of this joke. SO, this one may be best for preschoolers rather than 2’s. Happily, the game ends when Tumpty hears about the cookies everyone is sharing.
