Cow Millie finds the best hiding place on the whole farm: a tree. It's actually "a little too good": she gets stuck. Soon all the animals, even the farmer, are stranded with her. But with good friends, food, and a stellar view, it isn't so bad. Steffensmeier's illustrations, packed with droll details, feature welcoming animals and a jolly (lady) farmer. (c) Copyright 2014.

Booklist


From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.

Millie the cow is back, this time taking a game of hide-and-seek to a whole new level the treetops. The cumulative story builds in anticipation as several of Millie's friends try to rescue her from her precarious hiding place and instead find themselves in need of help, too. From the suggestive, singe-hued end pages (Millie in various poses, hiding and looking), the illustrations build in action and complexity, offering various perspectives in warm colors. And their format is unpredictable. Millie's treetop view of the farm is broad and inclusive, over a two-page spread; the pony's efforts to help are close-ups presented in three panels on a single page. The female farmer adds a positive touch, and the curious chickens are active observers. The story concludes with a whimsical treetop picnic, reflecting a child's view of how an adventure should end, with even the rescue firefighters enjoying tea and cake.--Ching, Edie Copyright 2010 Booklist

Cats get stuck in trees all the time, but how does a whole farm end up there? It's dj moo. Millie the cow may have used her hiding abilities for not-so-honorable purposes in Millie Waits for the Mail (2007). However, instead of hiding and scaring the mail carrier, now she loves to play hide-and-seek with her barnyard pals. But when the chickens, pigs and goats take all the good hiding places, she needs to find the best one. So she scampers up a tree. This seems to be perfect--no one can find her--except climbing up is a lot easier than climbing down. Millie is stuck! After a number of failed solutions that include a catapult and a ladder, suddenly all the animals and the farmer are up in the tree with Millie. (Well, not the chickens. They are down below, munching on popcorn, enjoying the shenanigans.) Luckily, the promise of cake lures the mail carrier to the farm, and he comes up with a foolproof rescue plan. Now, if only they could figure out how to rescue the cake too....Steffensmeier brilliantly infuses illustrations with humorous details, this time with even more opportunity, given the expansive view from the treetop. While difficult not to compare to Oliver Jeffers' Stuck (2011), this crazy cast of characters certainly holds its own. (Picture book. 4-7)]] Copyright Kirkus Reviews, used with permission.

K-Gr 2-The quirky cow from Millie Waits for the Mail (2007) and Millie in the Snow (2008, both Walker) displays her flair for hide-and-seek in this title. With pigs submerged in tubs and peering out of tractors, chickens stretched out on gutters, and goats under the henhouse, where can Millie hide? The very last place you'd expect, of course-and we'd all like to know just how she climbed that tree in the first place. The next question is how will she get down? Steffensmeier turns a mildly funny story into a feast of hilarity with his pictures of puzzled-but-never-panicked barnyard animals in surprising situations. As in his earlier books, the chickens steal the show, knitting wool scarves, toting the tea things, wearing funny hats, and playing cards in trees. Be sure to watch for the baby chicks making a carousel out of the gramophone. The latest Millie book will make an entertaining addition to any library and provide an outrageously unrealistic lesson on farm life and rescue teams.-Susan Weitz, formerly at Spencer-Van Etten School District, Spencer, NY (c) Copyright 2013.
