Lost in the Garden by Kerry McQuaide

Rating: WORTHY!

This is the second of two Kerry McQuaide young children's books I've read very recently. They were both charming and gorgeously illustrated. I particularly liked the photo-montage in this one, showing how the duo looked from the day they met in the neonatal ward, to their friendship as Midge started walking. They're part of a Midge and Moo series and in this one, the two of them get lost in the garden - duhh! Toddler Midge and her plush toy Moo (refreshingly a cow rather than a teddy bear) are out and about getting some fresh air, but where is Moo? Ulp! As Scully and Mulder (yes, there's a fox in this story!) might say, "The Moo is out there somewhere," and Midge is going to find her or diaper trying.....

The search is on. Is that Moo behind the garden gate, or is it a sneaky nod to Alice in Wonderland? Told in poetry, this book is fun, and you can doubtlessly have more fun with your kid searching for their own toy. I think it's appropriate for Valentine's day that you need tulips to seal the deal! I recommend this as an entertaining book for young children.
