Although the brilliant and elegantly energetic I Spy picture-puzzle series was conceived for children, these books have been delighting all ages since their advent in 1992. Writer Jean Marzollo’s clever rhymes set readers on a hunt through Wick’s colorful compositions jam-packed with an artistic array of common objects and regalia. Variations on the searches are limitless, as are the possibilities for learning basic skills as well as more complex themes and concepts. Ingenious and imaginative, the I Spy volumes encourage readers to look closely at not just the pictures but to reconsider their own surroundings.
Wick is the author and photographer of Can You See What I see? which held a place on The New York Times Bestseller List for 22 weeks and inspired several popular sequels. Whether creating photographic compositions out of odds and ends or elaborately constructed sets, Walter Wick opens the eyes and captures the imagination.
