The author invites you to take this fantastic journey in animals, in which you are invited to become aware of your shadow side and your true soul self.
This story is told through the eyes of Bettje and Jan, children of Menno Simons, who lived almost 500 years ago. Menno Simons was first a Catholic priest. As he read and studied the Bible, Menno began to understand the Christian life in a different way. Eventually he became an Anabaptist preacher. It was against the laws of that time for him to preach so Menno's preaching was done in secret at night to small groups. Soon, Menno Simons became the leader of the Anabaptists, now known as Mennonites. For 9-to-14-year-olds.

In this tale by the author of The Monster Detector, a Sasquatch and a human boy make a new friend while dealing with a curse and celebrating a birthday.
When a tribe of Sasquatches flee from a mysterious curse, they take refuge in Hugo’s home, Widdershins Cavern. These new Sasquatches look a bit . . . odd. For example, they all have unicorn horns on their heads! Always open to meeting new creatures, Hugo befriends one of these strange squidges, Nobb. Nobb offers to escort Hugo though the North Woods so that Hugo can attend Boone’s birthday party. Having never been inside a Human house, Hugo finds the experience confusing and somewhat disastrous. Just when it looks like Hugo may have ruined Boone’s birthday, they set out on a mission to solve the troubling curse in Nobb’s cavern.

Books in the Hide and Seek series provide an entertaining introduction to some of the words that tell us where things are. This book looks at “On” and “Under”, and features an animal character called Eddie the Elephant who is playing hide-and-seek. On each spread, Eddie is hiding using one of the two opposite words featured in the book’s title, and the reader is asked to find him. The fun, cartoon-like design combined with the interactive “hide-and-seek” approach makes these books visually appealing for young readers and great to read aloud together.
