About the Author

Walter Wick is the photographer of the bestselling I Spy series as well as the author and photographer of the bestselling Can You See What I See? series. He lives with his wife, Linda, in Connecticut.

More About the Author

When I was young I was a reluctant reader. It was hard for me to sit still and read a book. I preferred activities that got me moving, like neighborhood ball games, bike riding, skiing, sledding, skating, climbing trees, and exploring the woods in Connecticut where I grew up.

I taught also myself to draw. I became fascinated with shapes, shading, and trying to make the objects in my drawings appear to pop out in 3-D. Later I became interested in photography. I took pictures in the woods with my camera, tinkered with equipment in the darkroom, and experimented with artistic effects.

Much later I became the photographer of the I SPY books, in collaboration with writer Jean Marzollo. I did more than take the pictures. I thought of ideas, sketched ideas, collected props, made props, built sets, arranged objects, hid objects, adjusted lights, and took a picture. Then I rearranged objects and took another picture -- sometimes over and over again.

I write as well as illustrate my own books now. In A DROP OF WATER, I combine simple text with clear photographs to explain science secrets of the everyday world. In WALTER WICK'S OPTICAL TRICKS, the everyday world is turned upside down with impossible objects, phantom images, and other perplexing illusions. With the CAN YOU SEE WHAT I SEE? series, I continue the picture-puzzle tradition, taking readers on ever more amazing adventures of the imagination in their quest for hidden objects.

Happy reading!

Walter Wick

The books in this series are a family favorite.

The picture puzzles are beautifully composed and really clever, with some items easy to find and some trickier.

As with other Wick "Can you see what I see" series books, this one is excellent. Wonderful illustrations and well hidden objects can keep an adult, a 4yr old or 6yr old amused for hours! And then after you find it for the first time, you forget where it's hidden and have to do this over again. Also, we enjoy the written story (it's so well done)!!! Highly recommend these books from Wick.

My 3rd grade daughter and I enjoy doing look and find type books (we have a lot of Disney ones), and we recently picked up this Halloween themed one by Walter Wick, who also helped create the "I Spy" books. We bought this at the Scholastic book fair at her school.

This is an excellent Halloween look and find outing. There are 12 pages of pics that you can spend a lot of time pouring over trying to find the requested items. The production quality of the pictures is top notch, and they have just the right Halloween atmosphere.

The pages are very challenging, and there are a lot of additional items thrown in the pics, giving you plenty of "replay" options. I plan to buy the Christmas themed one next since this one was so well done.

It's also fun trying to find the red and yellow wooden robot included in every picture.

This is my #1 choice for the new Halloween books released in 2008 feature on my blog at thirteenforhalloween.com

OK. Absolutely awesome!!! This book is so, so cool. From the photographer of the I SPY series. They built a set worthy of a full-scale stop animation film like "Nightmare before Christmas" and then photographed it for the images in this book. It is so amazingly detailed. The story concept is taken from the well-known "In a dark, dark wood" classic. You start far away from this incredible castle, work your way through the village, inside and up the top most room where there is a cabinet and on a shelf of that cabinet is a bottle and in the bottle is a . . . well, you just have to see it. Did I say it was amazing? It absolutely knocked my socks off.

Dixie (my 1st grade teaching wife) and I look at every new Halloween book we can find, and we both agree, this is the cream of the 2008 Halloween releases for kids.

I started out as a fan of the "I SPY" books, and continued being a Walter Wick fan with the "Can you see what I see?" books. I don't have kids myself, so don't think this a "kids only" type of book! The settings and photography are artistically beautiful to say the least. Doing these "puzzles" really relaxes me and clears my mind. I'm sure some doctor somewhere could honestly say that these books are good for your health - keeping your mind active and your blood pressure low at the same time! Of course, these books are perfect for cuddling close with a child and solving the puzzles together! It's perfect way to wind down at the end of the day. If you like this book and also like the Halloween theme, try the I "SPY SPOOKY NIGHT".

My two year old grandson loves loves loves this book. I loved the photos and he found things that I could not find on my own. Great to help alleviate fears that children may have of some "scary" things.

New York Times bestselling author Walter Wick is the co-creator of the I Spy series with Jean Marzollo. He's successfully directed his talent to a new book, On a Scary Scary Night: Can You See What I See?

Halloween is around the corner and it is great fun to be able to read some funny and scary (not too scary) stories to the children. Wick takes children and adults into fantasy land with his new search-and-find book, On a Scary Scary Night: Can You See What I See?

Wick designed and his assistants created the sets photographed in this book and the sets are stunning works of art.

Wick's book is a must read. Unless you actually see the beautiful photos that have a hint of fright you just can't appreciate what this talented man has accomplished. My favorite photo is the aerial shot of the town. The color, illumination of the houses and general feel of the scene is delightful. I loved searching out the frogs on the town street, the details of the main street scene and the castle at night is stunning!

Armchair Interviews says: On a Scary Scary Night: Can You See What I See? is the perfect Halloween read.
