About the Author

Bastien Contraire is the co-founder of Papier Gaché, an independent publisher of fanzines and art books that promote contemporary drawing and comics. His work in design encouraged him to explore numerous hands-on art techniques, leading him to discover the stencil-print technique he uses for this book. Contraire lives in Paris.


"This beautiful board book is full of food - and something that doesn't belong with that food. Find the sneaky snake amongst vegetables, or the duck among the doughnuts, helping littles understand categorisation as they find the "imposter"."--Absolutely Mama

"Can you spot the umbrella amongst the mushrooms?... Help little ones find the imposter in each drawing and have a giggle along the way."--Baby Magazine

"A companion board book to the lovely Vehicle Hide and Sneak, this asks small children to spot the odd one out in an assortment of graphic foods - is it a toadstool or a beach umbrella, a rubber duck or an iced bun? Fun, engaging and beautifully produced."--Illustration Magazine

"Inspire your little one with this fun 'spot the odd one out' book. Which one isn't quite right? A fun thinking book based on food items for preschoolers."--Coombe Mill Family Farm Holidays

"Brightly colorful illustrations, this is a delight to look at... and this book also encourag[es] young readers to think critically."--5 Minutes for Mom

"You and your little one will enjoy the bright colors and striking stylistic illustration."--Twenty by Jenny

"Young readers can practice observational and organizational skills with this clever book that masquerades as a game."--Kirkus Review

"Contraire challenges readers to detect differences, while arresting color combination lends the visual game particular panache."--Publishers Weekly

"With a chic, pared-down aesthetic, Bastien Contraire plays tricks with perception in the mostly wordless puzzler Food Hide and Sneak."--The Wall Street Journal
