Look through this eye-catching book’s special spy hole to discover a world of animal colors! (Ages 2-5)
Have you ever played the I-spy game? Debut artist Edward Gibbs takes the game to a whole new level in this picture book with spy holes. Peeking through the pages, children will be able to spot a different colored animal every time, and guess what it is using a simple, factual clue. Bold illustrations and die-cut holes will absorb young readers as they learn about colors and animal names.
A classic childhood guessing game gets an elegant treatment from newcomer Gibbs in this introduction to colors and animals… Defined by joyful scribbled outlines, the exuberant, friendly animal portraits dazzle. —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
These wonderful, inky loops and tangles add wild-haired authenticity to the watercolor animals, which appear against flat habitat scenes. The spy hole steals the show, however, creating an active reading experience right up until the final page. —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
This creative book would work equally well in storytimes or one-on-one. —School Library Journal (starred review)
