Wick’s popular picture-puzzle series continues with this entry about a time-traveling robot crossing paths with a medieval princess. Twelve meticulously crafted spreads provide readers with untold treasures to seek and find. Simple verse runs down the side of each spread, providing a list of items for readers to find (“A fountain, 5 horses, / a fox, a goose”), but there are other hidden treats as well. A spotted cat can be, well, spotted in several of the spreads, providing natural continuity between them. And the signs of the zodiac appear first on a dazzling tapestry and then later in the night sky. Readers will need to rely on their vocabulary as well as their vision if they want to find the “aquatic pair,” “celestial lace,” a “peacock crown,” or a “guitar gauge.” While the adult reader might marvel at the work involved in constructing the attractive sets, young readers will simply have eyes for the visual game. Fans of the previous titles will be thrilled to lose themselves once more. Preschool-Grade 2. --Kara Dean
"No puzzle here--these well-designed scenes are another success from the picture-challenge master." --KIRKUS REVIEWS

What happens when a time traveling space alien lands in a castle's courtyard? Photographer and author Walter Wick imagines the two worlds colliding in his latest offering of Can You See What I See? Out Of This World. Truly imaginative, colorfully playful, and beautifully captured, this picture puzzle book will delight readers of all ages. The publisher's website recommends grade K-3, but children (and adults) of all ages will have hours of fun solving each puzzle.
Each two page spread captures the kingdom and its beautiful princess. The princess wakes in her magnificent boudoir, slips past a sleeping palace guard and goes to an upstairs room to read her fortune. The princess sees a robot man staring back at her. The kingdom welcomes the visitor from the future and entertains him at a banquet. The toys in the playroom are quiet and everyone turns in for the night.
Walter Wick continues to charm with his unique craft. His highly imagined photo sets are sure winners. Any fan of Wick's I Spy books or his earlier offerings of Can You See What I See books will love the latest.
Highly, highly recommended all ages. This book can also be used to teach aspects of art and photography: lighting, shading, set design, object placement, symmetry, and arrangement. Parents and grandparents, this is a great gift idea for birthdays or any other special occasion for children who love seek and finds.

Delivery was a little longer than I thought it would be considering I ordered 2 other "Can You See What I See" and 2 "I Spy" books on the same day. It hardly mattered since the other 3 books arrived a few days prior so we had time. Regardless, we are very happy and would recommend this book and seller to anyone interested.
