The Geisel Award–winning creators of See the Cat and See the Dog return for a comical new spoof on primers—and this time the cat, the dog, and the book are grappling with some curious things they can’t see.

It’s not easy to enjoy a picnic when you have unseeable interlopers to contend with! In a new trio of stories for beginning readers, the affable Max the dog and mischievous Baby Cakes the cat encounter a scare-happy ghost who has a run-in with a mirror, the wind at its blustery best, and a teeny-tiny fairy with a wayward wand who may have met her match. With playfully meta flair, author David LaRochelle and illustrator Mike Wohnoutka bring back their lovable characters for an amusing foray into things that go “Boo!,”“Whoosh!,”and “Hey! . . . Will you let me back into the book?”

Perfect for fans of Mo Willems. This Early Reader provides a controlled vocabulary to help new readers gain confidence while reading a book that feels substantial. It is humorous throughout as the mighty wind blows items off the page and a ghost scares everyone (including itself), but a fairy helps them all return for a bit of fun at the end. The story is broken into 3 chapters so a young reader can take a break or keep going and all the stories connect to each other. I love the use of dialogue boxes and the fun illustrations to keep readers engaged to the end and ready for the next in the series! Great for toddlers, preschoolers, and early readers.
