I've looked low,
I've looked high, but...
Where's my sweetie pie?

The anticipation of what's hiding on the next page will keep kids guessing and giggling all the way to the surprise ending - when a double lift-the-flap reveals a heart-shaped mirror and shows who the real sweetie pie is!
Praise for Where's My Sweetie Pie?
"There are plenty of cute surprises in this lift-the-flap book... The gentle buildup and "starring you" finish will likely prompt rereading." - PW
Praise for Go Away, Big Green Monster!
"The Caldecott Medalist makes wonderful use of innovative production techniques in this ingenious offering... A joy to read aloud, the simple story entertains even as it helps its audience master common fears. Emberley's striking approach should win him new fans aplenty." - PW
"A graphic delight... This imaginative, original work is a most friendly way in which children can take control over their own ``monsters'' or nightmares." - SLJ
"This striking picture book takes a hands-on approach to dealing with nighttime fears. In fact, it may be hard for parents to pry their kids' hands "off" the book and get them to bed... this picture book promises to jazz up any story time and to give individual children a measure of control over at least 'one' monster." - Booklist —
Praise for Glad Monster, Sad Monster:
"In this absolutely delightful book, the author focuses on the emotions of the young child with color, simplicity and fun... This is an excellent read aloud and should be welcomed by every media specialist who struggles to find just the right books for those pre-K classes" - Children's Literature
"Children who lack the vocabulary to distinguish the emotions they're feeling may find some comfort in this book, which makes use of masks to unmask feelings." - Kirkus —
