Wick (Walter Wick's Optical Tricks; the I Spy series) unleashes his boundless imagination to devise a dozen playful picture puzzles, each with a distinct theme. The large-scale photographs feature a carefully choreographed assortment, of contemporary and vintage toys and other kid-pleasing paraphernalia. Alongside the images, a deceptively simple verse instructs youngsters to spot specific items in the picture. The author cleverly tweaks the game at the end of each rhyme, inviting readers (sometimes rather cryptically) to enter a puzzle-within-a-puzzle: they must either follow a maze, match two sets of objects, find differences in seemingly similar images or spot an optical illusion. Several of Wick's compositions stand out as particularly novel: one photo set in a wood shop reveals freshly carved animal figures, sprinkled with wood shavings; another assembles hundreds of miniature animals, beads and other objects used in making play jewelry-all of them translucent and sparkling against a white background. Even sharp-eyed readers will find some or Wick's puzzles quite challenging to complete. These pages are nearly guaranteed to keep kids happily occupied for hours and coming back for return visits.

Fans of Wick's and Jean Marzollo's I Spy series will be thrilled with a new challenge while newcomers will become immediate devotees with this dozen of picture puzzles to search and solve. With Wick's usual frenzied color-photo montages, each spread has rhyming clues to locate a variety of game objects. The caption of each puzzle indicates the theme, such as "String Game," "Card Tricks," "Domino Effect," and "Magic Mirror." An author's note explains that he has combined classic search-and-find puzzles with other familiar types of puzzles. Some are mazes, some are matching games, some are spot-the-difference games, and some are simple cryptic games with a few optical ones for good measure. The cover even contains
