Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Katsh
As intricate as a Waldo book and almost as addicting, this puzzle book takes readers on a world tour as they follow their tour guide, a globe-trotting globe. There are many adventures to be had and many geography lessons to learn here; but there also are many ways to short-cut the intended journeys. Readers who ignore those shortcuts will be rewarded with interesting and informative trips. Those readers tempted by the shortcuts will find themselves meaninglessly turning pages. 1996 (orig.
School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-These game books follow the same basic pattern. In Globe, the more successful and appealing of the two, readers travel through countries by following a series of precise directions. When touring the Middle East, for example, they are directed to ``take a bus'' from Shiraz northwest to Esfahan, and the route is clearly indicated in the illustration, nicely reinforcing several geographic concepts at once. A compass appears on each double-page spread. Items are hidden throughout, and interesting tidbits about the cities or countries visited are also tossed into the pot. A globe hidden on each spread sends readers from region to region as determined by the colors on the world map at the beginning of the book. In Hourglass, readers select the ``remarkable moment'' they would like to travel to from a time chart at the beginning of the book. After turning to the page as directed, they are given things to look for, each of which offers information about the period or culture visited. Cartoon drawings and balloon-enclosed messages add humor and some essential facts. All the while, youngsters must keep alert for objects from the present that are anachronistically in the pictures. Finally, the hourglass must be spotted, since its color determines the next ``trip.'' The illustrations in both titles are bright and appealing, and the language, while occasionally forced in its enthusiasm, is clear and understandable. Neither volume is an essential purchase, but both will fly off the shelves and into the arms of children looking for recreational amusement. And for that, they could do worse.-Linda Greengrass, Bank Street College Library, New York City
