Ooh, lovely. Many books can be cute, cuddly & sweet, like this, but Mazer made it extra special by making the tender parent a father and by bringing a poet's ear to the lines. I don't mean just that it rhymes, but that many of the lines are just achingly perfect.

My barefoot dancer;
my brown-eyed prancer"

"Where is that little jumping bean?
She must be hungry - it's time for lunch.
I want her; I need her, I miss her a bunch."

"My daisy fluff, my sweet big stuff.
My clever; my funny, my lovely, my sunny."

The only reasons I'm not giving it five stars is because I don't think it's quite something I'd like to push on everyone I know and because, although the illustrations were charming, they weren't perfectly suited to my taste." ( )

I read Has Anyone Seen My Emily Greene? By Norma Fox Mazer. This book was very fun and playful. It kept me interested because of the storyline. The book was about a little named Emily Greene who was hiding from her dad. He made her lunch and so when it was ready Emily decided she wanted to hide from. So her dad begins to look everywhere for her. What made it interesting and fun was how playful her father was with her. He went right along with the game. It reminds me of my dad and how we used to play around all the time. I believe the message of this book is to remember to be playful every now and then. ( )
