Has anyone seen my Emily Greene? Her lunch is ready. Itís half past noon. The tableís setóknife, fork, and spoon. Iíve made oodles of noodles, brown-sugar ham, and fresh-baked bread with strawberry jam.Ē A lilting text describes a fatherís 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 Mazerís buoyant narrative is paired with whimsical illustrations by Christine Davenier underscoring a warm, loving, merry encounter between father and child. © Cooperative Children's Book Center
