Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Ages 4-8. Using riotous color and cheerfully surreal designs, photographer Wick has created a collection of picture riddles filled with hidden objects associated with amusement park fun houses. Clowns, balloons, pinwheels, and puppet stages are only a few of the objects in the pictures, which are accompanied by rhyming clues that point the way toward the hidden objects in each spread. The third in a series by Marzollo and Wick, this has the same high-quality color reproductions as the previous books. While the subject matter alone will make the book a success, a section of "Extra Credit" riddles, a suggestion for writing original picture riddles, and an explanation of how the sets for each photograph were made will help make the book even more popular. ~--Janice Del Negro"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "It's hard to believe that Marzollo and Wick could top their I Spy Christmas , but their latest book of picture riddles is their best yet. Once again, each spread consists of a spectacular color photograph of an even more spectacularly propped 4 8 set, paired with four lines of verse that challenge the reader (``I spy a fish, five clothespins, a rose; / The reflection of an elephant's nose . . .''). Wick's dramatic lighting, his diverse use of shadows and his varied backgrounds set new standards for children's photography books, while Marzollo's seemingly straightforward rhymes are marked by wit and subtlety. The fun-house theme is exploited to grand effect in the scenery choices. Musical instruments and symbols, clown puppets and toys proliferate; and sets incorporating fun-house mirrors, magician's props, dressing room paraphernalia, bandstands and so forth not only create atmosphere but add to the complexity of each puzzle. Bonus for readers beyond the suggested age range: the extra-credit riddles at the end are devilish indeed. Ages 3-8. (Apr.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
