Full Text Reviews:
School Library Journal - 09/01/1996 K-Gr 4--Another brilliant collaboration by this incredibly innovative duo. This time, the puzzles take place in and around a haunted house (an altered Victorian dollhouse). Readers are invited to search for mice, spiders, candles, bats, jack-o-lanterns, and bones among other creepy things found in the hallway, library, fireplace, and laboratory of the house, as well as in the graveyard and a garden of ghoulies outside. (How the miniature cobwebs were simulated remains a mystery.) Using a spooky sky for a backdrop, various props, and some very creative lighting, Wick achieves a definite dramatic effect. Marzollo's clever rhyming puzzles add great flair, and, as in the earlier titles, readers are encouraged to solve more riddles at the end and to make up selections of their own. This book is fun for a wide range of ages, as the picture riddles vary in difficulty and sophistication. A must, in multiple copies, for any Halloween collection.--Helen Rosenberg, Chicago Public Library, IL - Copyright 1996 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
Booklist - 09/15/1996 For reading aloud. Youngsters who enjoy a challenge will delight in this latest I Spy offering, in which rhyming riddles invite readers to locate various objects in the accompanying picture. For this book, Wick constructed intricate sets, then photographed them in dramatic lighting. The result is a series of spectacularly eerie pictures chock-full of hidden objects. Some objects are easy to see, ensuring even the youngest child some success. But there are always one or two items in each scene that require a sharp eye and a lot of patience. Extra Credit Riddles, found at the end of the book, offer more challenges, as do the appended suggestions for creative writing tie-ins. With little actual reading required, the book will be ideal for encouraging reluctant readers or children who have reading disabilities. (Reviewed Sept. 15, 1996) - Copyright 1996 Booklist.
