CAN YOU SEE WHAT I SEE? TOYLAND EXPRESS
By Walter Wick
CAN YOU SEE WHAT I SEE? TOYLAND EXPRESS, the eighth title in the bestselling search-and-find series, is a beautifully illustrated “search and find” book that allows readers to search for more than 250 hidden objects.
Whistler, at only 2 years old, absolutely LOVES these types of books. We have several of them, and we can spend up to an hour sitting together playing “find what mommy sees”. What I like about this particular book is that it is an overall story – not just random individual pictures on pages.
The same toys you see in the raw wood form in the beginning are shown throughout the book in on their journey from the workshop to the attic, only to be rescued at a yard sale and brought to life once again in a new home. You will also notice how the train takes on various transformations along its journey.
About the author:
Walter Wick has opened millions of eyes to a world of treasures big and small in his award-winning, bestselling I SPY and CAN YOU SEE WHAT I SEE? picture-puzzle books. Walter discovered his passion for building picture puzzles by accident. One day when cleaning out a drawer, he scattered odds and ends on a glass tabletop and photographed them. The photo appeared in a magazine and caught the eye of Jean Marzollo, editor of Scholastic’s Let’s Find Out.
This photo inspired the first I SPY book, with riddles by Jean Marzollo, and led to their long collaboration. Walter meticulously constructs 3-D sets for CAN YOU SEE WHAT I SEE? in his Connecticut studio. For videos and more photos visit his Facebook page.
