Can You See What I See? On a Scary Scary Night - Walter Wick

Can You See What I See?
On a Scary Scary Night
Walter Wick
Cartwheel Books an imprint of

ISBN 9780439708708

This book contains 23 pages of great picture puzzles, and items to find and solve. The books in this series are a family favorite. My children love looking through the pictures and finding the items in question, or solving the puzzles. Wick, the co-creator of the I Spy books, has a knack for visual narrative. In this book, he retells the tale of In A Dark Dark Wood, across 12 picture narratives with one picture zoomed into 8 times its original size for details. He begins with a castle on a hill and proceeds until we are through the castle and in a potion bottle. The dark imagery is fun to explore with children and is a book they will go back to again and again. The progression in this story is:
On A Scary Scary Night
Beneath A Scary Scary Moon
In A Scary Scary Town
On A Scary Scary Street
Atop a Scary Scary Hill
In A Scary Scary Castle
Up Scary Scary Stairs
In A Scary Scary Tower
In A Scary Scary Cupborard
On A Scary Scary Shelf
In A Scary Scary Bottle
There Was A Ghost!
This book is full of amazing illustrations and story, tying them together, sure to entertain the young and young at heart.
