It’s time to go, but no one can find Hannah! That’s because she’s in the park with much to do. She needs to collect caterpillars and sticks, make a bow and arrow, and build a bed out of leaves. Deep in the shrubs, she sets up a secret hideout for herself and her companion, an Odd Furry Creature. Together, they hunker down over the campfire, lost in their own little world. But then a voice cuts through the branches and clearly says, “Where are you?” Hannah brushes off her paper, and the reader learns that Hannah was lost—not in the woods—but in her drawing. This dreamlike, lyrical picture book with shades of Where the Wild Things Are illustrates the power of imagination to transport us to new worlds.

Full-color illustrations were created with watercolor and colored pencils.

Completely and safely ensconced, Hannah hides in a thicket in the park. Her only companion is an Odd Furry Creature, who says very little but is a cozy and contented partner. Together they roast pigeons over the fire and collect caterpillars, sticks, and dried leaves. As they grow more at home in their hiding spot, the bramble closes in tightly around them until they are sure that no one could possibly find them in the perfectly quiet den that they have created. Rich, earthy illustrations are filled with myriad precious things, such as marbles and leaves, acorn tops and blue buttons. Hannah is a young child with red hair, a coonskin cap, and practical and patched pants; she is completely content in her rustic and homey den. The lovely text weaves and flows through the story with a dreamlike quality, and builds such a completely immersive world that readers will be startled when they must return to reality. A marvelous exploration of the depth and creativity of a child’s imagination. Readers will easily lose themselves in this fantastic story. Highly recommended.
