The humor & illustrations are a bit dark for the attended audience, but is a very fun way for children to be interactive with a book. The continuing guessing allows the readers to create their own idea of what the main character is... The detail in the illustrations is one thing to keep an eye for, & all of the hidden objects (especially the wardrobe page). Also, in the end, there is an unexpected twist in this character...

This book is a book about Daisy O'Grady. This book asks questions about her, then asks the reader to guess. Each page is a different question, followed by "Guess!". In the end, people can see if their predictions are right. This book looks at what people generalize and think, then gives an ending that many people would not have thought.

This book would be a good book to read to your class in October around Halloween. Children are asked a question then it says guess. When you turn the page it says yes. Through-out the whole book they are describing a witch and the last qustion asked is she mean? Everyone assumes Yes she is but she really is not. You could read this when children stereotype other people.

Guess What is a book about how people see someone by just hearing what they look like. The narrator gives an answer to what someone is asking her. ¿Does she what a broom?¿ Guess! ¿Yes!¿. That is a glimpse of how the book is. The illustrations are amazing in this book. Very detailedAs student I found this book very boring and not interesting. The pictures were great to look at, but the story was not great. However the story did show you the harmfulness of judging before you meet someone. That was nice.As a teacher I would us this book for one reason. The ideal that is gives off. The language is boring and not entertaining, but it gives off good morals. DON¿T JUDGE!! Other than that I would not use it.

I love this book and read it to my 21 month old daughter. It probably helped teach her the word yes. It also has the most amazing art work I have ever seen in a child's picture book. Certainly some content in the illustrations may be objectionable to some people, but I found it to be delightful and nothing that I would deem harmful to my child. Even more rewarding is that my child loves owls and there are many to be found in the illustrations as well as so much more beyond the other reviewers 'objectionable' content. It also has a nice message. I highly recommend it as something both a child and an adult can enjoy.

After reading this book with my boys 5 & 8, we were going throught the pictures 'finding' things (max & and a monster from 'where the wild things are', ect) when I saw a button on the which's dress for the 'sex pistols' you can see it in 3 pictures. I am not one for book bashing, but this just seems unnecessary and inapporpriate.

Each page gives several clues to the answers of the questions for older readers to use inference to answer the questions. I enjoyed being able to look at the amazing detail in the illustrations while reading this to children and pointing out familiar objects to them.
