This bestselling book features a number of favorite I Spy riddles that send readers searching 12 photographs for hidden objects.
After mastering the many I Spy books and then moving on to overcome the tougher-riddled I Spy Gold Challenger, kids begged Jean Marzollo and Walter Wick for an even greater challenge. Naturally, this creative team rose to the occasion, creating the ultimate: Extreme Challenger! Open to any page and find a mind-boggling array of things: “a lobster, a pig, a guitar, / Two skulls, a button, a spring, a car.” Wick’s exceptional photographic skill renders each object crystal clear, whether on a blank white background or against a backdrop of dusty old bookshelves with antique toys, keys, clocks, and tools. Marzollo’s rhymes are straightforward yet clever, matching “an ace” with “a missing bottle’s space,” and “puffball shoes” with “sad blue ooze.” Children will have such a lot fun “I spying,” they may not even realize they are developing their visual discrimination ability, in addition to their reading and vocabulary skills! Extra credit riddles on the end of the big, colorful book provide an additional test of readers’ nimbleness, and the authors also encourage children to write their own rhyming picture riddles in accordance with the illustrations in the book. Okay, all you eagle-eyes available in the market, have at it! (Ages 3 to 8) –Emilie Coulter
