Where Are You, Wilbert?

Where Are You, Wilbert?

  • $18.95


A small gray rat and her large gray friend, Wilbert, are playing hide-and-seek. Wilbert is tough to find, so the rat asks a passing crocodile for help. Together, they hunt behind every tree they can see, and finally, the rat spots Wilbert. But the crocodile can’t see Wilbert — even when he’s standing right in front of them. Why not?

With minimal text, spare design, and deadpan delivery, this charming story introduces a big idea: that we all see the world differently, and sometimes we can’t see what’s right in front of us. It’s a quietly funny, insightful meditation on the world around us. This simple but deeply felt book will provoke thought about perspective, point of view, and blind spots.
