La description

Every evening before brushing their teeth and getting ready for bed, Vivi and Monkey play the game: Monkey hides under a sheet, and Vivi pretends to look for him. Chair wishes more than anything that he could play, too. One evening, Chair decides to make Monkey late for the game so that Vivi will look for him instead. But nothing goes quite according to plan! A funny and sweet story about feeling left out, from the author and illustrator of A Year Without Mom.

[U]nique, nuanced artwork.

- School Library Journal

[A] clever representation of all-too-real feelings of the young. Bright, expressive illustrations add to the chuckle-worthy drama.

- Kirkus Reviews

Certain to become a go-to read-aloud choice for educators, librarians, and parents alike when seeking to promote the importance of inclusion.
