Details: Product Description With hundreds of thousands of copies sold, the bestselling I Spy series is being relaunched with a new design and a foil jacket. This bestselling book features a collection of favorite I Spy riddles that send readers searching though 12 photographs and 12 months of the year in search of hidden objects. From Amazon Eagle-eyed young readers who can't get enough of Walter Wick and Jean Marzollo's always fresh picture-riddle books ( I Spy, I Spy Treasure Hunt, I Spy Gold Challenger, etc.) will be tickled pink to see this celebration of the seasons. Featuring Wick's trademark crisply photographed scenes and Marzollo's clever rhyming riddles, this festive volume follows the holidays and months of the year, asking readers to spy beach balls, shovels, and "a surfin' fella" on the sand in June, and exclamation points, a Q, erasers, and a yellow three on a classroom chalkboard in September. From January to December (with some tricky extra credit riddles at the end), "Picture riddles fill this book; / Turn the pages! Take a look! / Use your mind, use your eye; / Read the riddles--play I SPY!" (Ages 3 to 7) --Emilie Coulter From Publishers Weekly Jean Marzollo's riddles and Walter Wick's smashing photography combine from an amalgam of previous hits in I Spy Year-Round Challenger! A Picture Book of Riddles. "I spy three walnuts, four almonds, four bows," begins January's riddle, and "The Holly and the Ivy" is from I Spy Christmas. In November's "Nature Close Up": "I spy a pencil, four blueberries, a bee/ And a winged pair of seeds from a maple tree." Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information, Inc. From School Library Journal Kindergarten-Grade 2--These photographic puzzles celebrate seasons and holidays throughout the year. A January background of snow and evergreens is full of wrapped presents, nuts, a "bear sextet," and more. For Halloween, a ghostly dollhouse bathed in blue light conceals jack-o'-lantern flowerpots, a topiary rabbit, and a shadowy candelabra. Kids will enjoy the familiar game of finding the objects named in the brief text. While the photographs are not as brilliantly arranged as those in earlier books, eager puzzle solvers will gobble this one up, too. Jean Pollock, King Country Library System, Seattle, WA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information, Inc. From Booklist Ages 4-7. As in I Spy Gold Challenger (1998) and I Spy Extreme Challenger (2000), this book draws from the original I Spy volumes and recycles 12 colorful, double-page photographs, one for every month of the year. These large, highly detailed photos are paired with new rhymes that challenge children to look and find different objects from the original offerings that are perhaps more difficult to spot. In an appended section, Marzollo shows children how to create their own riddle rhymes, pointing out ways to recreate the rhythm (waltz time, Sweet Betsy from Pike, or rap) and the rhyme scheme. Although the series' many fans might prefer an all-new I Spy book, they'll find this a diverting alternative. Carolyn Phelan Copyright © American Library Association.
