I Spy: Fun House by Jean Marzollo and Walter Wick

Yes, another I Spy book. But what can I say? I love them and want everyone to take a peek inside one and see if they can tear themselves away. The fun house is indeed a fun house, with crazy mirrors, clowns, balloons, fanfare, and magic, and all kinds of other carnival treats. All the while you search for little things like keys and animals and secret images and words. Expertly set up with all sorts of unique objects from new to nostalgic to make some fantastic photos for the book, it can keep a person engrossed for quite some time. More riddles in the back if you run out of them in the book! Or just take your time on each picture and notice all the tiny intricate things that hide in the pages.
