Walter Wick is the photographer of the international bestselling I
Spy series as well as the author and photographer of the acclaimed
Can You See What I See? series. He lives with his wife, Linda, in
Miami Beach, Florida.
Award-winning author Jean Marzollo was the author of over 100 books, including the bestselling I Spy series; Help Me Learn Numbers 0-20; Help Me Learn Addition; Help Me Learn Subtraction; Pierre the Penguin; Soccer Sam; Happy Birthday, Martin Luther King; The Little Plant Doctor; In 1776; Mama Mama/Papa Papa; and I Am Water; as well as books for parents and teachers, such as The New Kindergarten.
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 ---School Library Journal, December 2000
