Review of Hide and Don’t Seek by Anica Mrose Rissi (earc)



Hide and Don’t Seek by Anica Mrose Rissi

If you’re feeling brave, turn the page.
A game of hide-and-seek goes on far too long…
A look-alike doll makes itself right at home…
A school talent-show act leaves the audience aghast…
And a summer at camp takes a turn for the braaaains
This collection of all-new spooky stories is sure to keep readers up past their bedtimes, laughing, gasping, and looking over their shoulders to see what goes bump in the night.

Expected publication: August 3rd 2021 by HarperCollins/Quill Tree Books




This was a super quick read that I finished in one day.

I think this book will be best for younger middle grade. I’m thinking 4th-6th grade level. I think it would be pretty creepy for them. Hide and Don’t Seek is a book with short stories. Some of them were scarier than others and there were a few that I really enjoyed. The one with the cat, Ghost, was a stand out for me. This is an easy read that I think a lot of kids will end up liking. Some of the stories were only a minute long and others were around 6-8 minutes. I really loved the illustrations.

I gave this book 3 1/2 stars rounded up to 4 on Goodreads.

Thank you to the publisher and Edelweiss for my review copy.
