I spy a snake, a three-letter word,The beauty of these books, which include I Spy Funhouse and I Spy Gold Challenger, is that when the initial riddle is solved, there are still extra credit riddles in the back, as well as countless other games of varying degrees of difficulty any imaginative parent or child can create. Readers of all ages, distracted by the bright, eye-catching objects, may find the challenge surprisingly difficult, and will delight in finding something new with every reading. (Ages 3 to 7) --Emilie Coulter
And flying underneath, a great white bird;
Nine gold stars, a blue tube of glitter,
One clay cat, and a six-legged critter.

There are 13 picture puzzles on the themes of ornaments, winter wonderland, window shopping, the holly and the ivy, winter sports, baking cookies, Christmas crafts, Santa's workshop, stocking stuffers, antique teddy bears, nutcracker sweets, under the tree, and Silent Night. As you can tell from the subjects, each puzzle explores a different aspect of the Christmas holiday.
Each photograph for the puzzle is almost two oversized facing pages of brilliant color crammed with details. At the bottom is a brief couplet, telling you what to find. It is in the form of
I spy an A, a B,
The C, a D;
Two Es, a P,
Some Qs, and a Z.
The images range enormously from large, obvious ones (7 pine cones) to subtle, partially hidden ones (the shadow of a star).
A separate photographic set was established for each image, which gives lots of variety of scene and lighting. Most sets were about four feet by eight feet and were photographed with an 8" by 10" view camera. Chicken wire, baking soda for snow, and other disguises are used to make it all seem like Christmas. Each photograph is in stunning color. I especially liked the one with the Christmas ornaments.
The book also contains some extra credit riddles, such as what item is in each photograph.Read more ›
