“Has anyone seen my Emily Greene? Her lunch is ready. It’s half past noon. The table’s set—knife, fork, and spoon. I’ve made oodles of noodles, brown-sugar ham, and fresh-baked bread with strawberry jam.” A lilting text describes a father’s playful search for his missing toddler daughter, who is always hidden in plain sight in a pleasing picture book depicting an exchange familiar to many young children. Norma Fox Mazer’s buoyant narrative is paired with whimsical illustrations by Christine Davenier underscoring a warm, loving, merry encounter between father and child. (Ages 1–4)
