This book promises boundless excitement for young readers with innovative photos of toys, animals, food, utensils, and other craftily hidden objects.
"The volume includes a stunning spread of "Odds and Ends" (from the original I Spy) and a composition of gorgeous antique playthings in "The Toy Box Solution" (from I Spy Mystery)." Publishers Weekly
"Another enjoyable collection that will be especially appreciated by students who have mastered the previous titles in the series. Carrie Lynn, School Library Journal
"The rhyming riddle cannot be solved by looking at the objects alone; readers must learn to observe their shadows as well." Carolyn Phelan, Booklist
Wick and Marzollo's latest challenge follows the now-familiar format of rhyming riddles listing items to find in an accompanying double-page photograph. The illustrations have been gleaned from earlier "I Spy" titles but the verses are new. Each full-color, glossy picture is arranged perfectly so that shadow and space share the spotlight with the odds and ends pictured. The extra-credit riddles on the last few pages are a fun way to extend the experience. Another enjoyable collection that will be especially appreciated by students who have mastered the previous titles in the series.-Carrie Lynn Cooper, Eastern Kentucky University, Richmond
