Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 4-Andy is building a pirate ship. As he goes through his house, he collects several things he needs from each room. With help from hints in the text, readers compare before-and-after drawings to determine what he takes. The vessel that Andy eventually completes is an ingenious conglomeration of household items. Keys to the pictures are included at the end, along with additional objects to look for and a puzzle to solve. The full-page illustrations are clear, colorful, and cartoonlike. A nice alternative to the "Waldo" books (Little), with more of a challenge and less clutter.

From Kirkus Reviews

Here's a Waldo spinoff with extra dimensions. Andy, who is building a pirate ship, searches his house for components, from a broom for the mast to his sister's toy parrot to sit on his shoulder. Each place he goes (attic, garage, kitchen, or bedroom, all are comically cluttered) is shown, on facing pages, before and after Andy raids it; finding what's missing among the welter of objects is a real challenge--even with hints (``He took five things altogether--two of them made a pair''). Give up? Work back from the picture of the completed ship (it's wonderfully creative and almost plausible), or from an illustrated key at the end. For the indefatigable, there's another list of still more things to find. An unusually well-crafted entry in a popular genre. (Picture book. 4-8) -- Copyright ©1994, Kirkus Associates, LP.
