Color matching takes on new meaning in this puzzle game that joins a series of board books using the Pantone Matching System. Tucked inside six scenes illustrated by Carpenter are four removable cardboard pieces that fit into die-cut spots on the facing pages. A pointy spire in a blue cityscape has its home inside the “nighttime blue” quadrant of one spread, while two oval leaves in “grasshopper” and “dollar bill” green pop out of a jungle scene that highlights a frog, snake, and toucan. Lively interactive fun. Ages 3–5. (Oct.)

Another overdesigned board book, with puzzle pieces this time, from PANTONE, the company that creates the widely used color matching system. Each double-page spread focuses on one color of the rainbow. The left-hand side is a full-page, graphically minded scene using a variety of hues of the color in question. On the facing pages, the PANTONE chips make their appearance, four shades occupying the four quadrants of the page separated by a bold white line in typical PANTONE fashion. Both sides of each page spread carry four shaped indentations to hold abstract puzzle shapes made of paperboard. Featuring machines that go on the left, the red spread has pieces that become the door and siren on a fire truck. These same pieces fit into slots labeled "Stop Sign Red / PANTONE 485" and "Brick Red / PANTONE 7627" on the right. While the cartoon tableaux are droll, the use of PANTONE numbers will make little sense to youngsters. The puzzle pieces themselves are relatively easy to get in and out once loosened, but, after a few readings, they will likely flake at the edges if they are not lost altogether. The small pieces force this message on the back cover: "WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD—Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs." While the puzzle gimmick may hold youngsters' interest for a few readings, it is unlikely to have a long shelf life. (Board book. 3-4)
