Hiding Heidi by Fiona Woodcock


Published by Simon and Schuster, 2016.

Heidi is brilliant at hiding. She has an ability to blend into the background and she can camouflage herself in her surroundings with ease.


It means that she’s fantastic at hide-and-seek. She always wins. In fact, it’s all she wants to play.


Her friends make suggestions for other games but Heidi isn’t keen. It’s only when most of Heidi’s own birthday party happens without her (she’s hidden herself so well that her friends can’t find her) that she starts to rethink her attitude.

I love this book! The story has an important message about friendship and compromise, and the illustrations are gorgeous. It’s printed on lovely cream pages and Fiona Woodcock has used grey alongside bold contrasting colours to great effect. It’s tremendous fun looking for Heidi and I really like the imaginative ways in which she’s hidden.
