Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

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.--School Library Journal, April 2002

Creators Jean Marzollo and Walter Wick have outdone themselves with this stellar assortment of photos arranged in a calendar theme. February features a Valentine's spread, filled with hearts, cards, cookies, and ribbons. May is matched with woodsy scene filled with lush greens and browns. October is a spooky sight with a haunted house on harrowing grounds. This special edition was created in response to the I Spy readers who have found everything in every I Spy book. I Spy novices will find these succinct rhymes and wonderfully clever and detailed photos a breath of fresh air. Their unique look, as well as the many hours that can be spent scanning the pages, will intrigue young readers. There's no doubt -- I Spy offers hours of fun and a novel way to energize your brain.
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." ( Nov.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
