Reviews
"With rhythm and repetition, this book has the makings of a storytime hit. The artwork is charming, allowing sharp-eyed readers to outwit the book's characters and locate the afikoman one very page." --Kirkus Review

"At a large seder attended by people of varying abilities, ages, and skin tones, six kids and a dog are dispatched to look for the afikomen--deemed "a silly, sneaky guy" by the participant-narrator, and depicted by Kelner with simple but mischievous facial features and stick arms and legs. Pencil, ink, and digital art, lavish with domestic details, shows the seekers moving through the house and backyard, leaving no cushion unturned, no drawer unopened, and, in the dog's case, no roll of toilet paperunrolled." --Publishers Weekly

★"This cheerful Passover picture book is Where's Waldo? meets The Gingerbread Man. Children will find Levington's singsong, rhyming text delightful. The storyline is simple but effective. This fun book could become a Passover classic." --School Library Journal
