The I Spy series features lush photographs crammed with an astounding variety of objects, some prominent and some hidden, that follow a particular theme. This book is all about Christmas. Each two-page spread has a title in the table of contents that identifies to readers the theme of the picture, from window shopping to antique teddy bears, Christmas cooking to a snowy scene. Each photograph is accompanied by two rhyming couplets, identifying objects in the picture that the reader is expected to find. Some of these are simple, but others are deceptively hard. How difficult can it be to find a pan? When it is a miniature-sized pan, propped in the corner of a window and half buried by snow, it can be quite challenging indeed.

The I Spy series is a visual delight, and I enjoy hunting through the photographs as much as my children do. They can find many of the hidden objects, and I help them find the tougher ones. Although sometimes their young eyes spot things that I overlook! The more people hunting, each with her own perspective, the easier the puzzle becomes. If you find everything in one picture, don't despair - bonus puzzles are included at the end to extend the fun. As a puzzle fun, I love the concept of the series, and enjoy perusing this particular book at Christmas time. ( )
