Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

It's hard to believe that Marzollo and Wick could top their I Spy Christmas , but their latest book of picture riddles is their best yet. Once again, each spread consists of a spectacular color photograph of an even more spectacularly propped 4 8 set, paired with four lines of verse that challenge the reader ("I spy a fish, five clothespins, a rose; / The reflection of an elephant's nose . . ."). Wick's dramatic lighting, his diverse use of shadows and his varied backgrounds set new standards for children's photography books, while Marzollo's seemingly straightforward rhymes are marked by wit and subtlety. The fun-house theme is exploited to grand effect in the scenery choices. Musical instruments and symbols, clown puppets and toys proliferate; and sets incorporating fun-house mirrors, magician's props, dressing room paraphernalia, bandstands and so forth not only create atmosphere but add to the complexity of each puzzle. Bonus for readers beyond the suggested age range: the extra-credit riddles at the end are devilish indeed. Ages 3-8.

From School Library Journal

K Up-- Another in the popular "I Spy" series, this entry features the same high-quality photography, clever design, and rhyming riddles found in the two previous books. Additional challenging riddles are printed at the end of the book. Youngsters are also invited to devise their own riddles, and plenty of unnamed images are available for them to use. The fun-house theme brings glimpses of magicians' paraphernalia, tickets, toys and treats, a puppet stage, and other more or less connected objects and settings. The painted puppets who appear in many of the pictures, the image of the distorting mirrors, and a variety of painted masks may frighten preschoolers, but they are not the intended audience. A challenging, topnotch offering that's more fun than a barrel of monkeys. --Lisa Dennis, The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh

Format: Board book
This is a "I spy" book for beginners. My 2 1/2 old was mesmerized by it the first time he saw it and immediately asked me to "read it again". However, he found all but one of the objects relatively quickly the first time around and now it won't take him more than one minute to go through the whole book. I encourage him to look for objects that are not featured on the left pages to make it more challanging.

This book was not what I expected when arrived, much smaller then I thought. It is a good for start for new comers to the I spy collection but would not recommend for older children as it is lacking in spying aspect.
