Munro has drawn a wide variety of appealing, alphabetically arranged mazes filled with colorful details that will absorb young readers. Each letter is featured on a spread or a page with directions for traveling through the maze and finding different objects along the way. For example, O is for orchard: "Carry the basket of apples through the ORCHARD to the farmhouse. Then get back on the path to the picnic table for lunch." Then, readers are asked to "find 3 cows, a pier, a barn, a bridge, a park bench, a horse, a tractor, a ladder, 4 gates, a dog, a picnic table, and a pickup truck." Other settings include an airport, boatyard, highway, library, quarry, and ranch. The level of difficulty for each challenge falls somewhat below Martin Handford's "Where's Waldo?" (Candlewick) books and Jean Marzollo's "I Spy" (Scholastic) series. Back pages provide solutions. This engaging title works as an interactive alphabet book, an introduction to mapping skills, or to sharpen visual discrimination skills.
