Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathleen Karr
This recreates some of the spirit and fun of the old Richard Scarry books as Esmerelda and Thomas arrive at the castle home of the eccentric Clan MacPelican. Following the adventures of two spiders, twenty dogs and assorted MacPelican family members and retainers, youngsters can hunt for treasure, follow mazes, or even get involved in ritual pillow fights. The illustrations are colorful, busy, and irresistible.

K-Gr 3-In this ``Waldo'' clone, Thomas and Esmerelda are spending a day at Uncle Hector MacPelican's castle. There is no story line linking the scenes; each double-page spread shows a different section of the castle and features things to count and find, a maze, and a treasure hunt. The clues are listed in boxes at the tops of the pages. The very colorful and detailed artwork is done in pen and watercolor. Children will find the challenges easier than those in Handford's titles or Marzollo's ``I Spy'' books (Scholastic). A fun, ephemeral choice for collections in which demand for puzzle and ``find it'' books is high.-JoAnn Rees, Sunnyvale Public Library, CA
