Inhaltsangabe: At first glance, Eye Spy is a simple alphabet book featuring words which sound alike but have different meanings, but there is more. The intriguing book is also a two-tiered guessing game: Readers must first deduce the answer to the riddle contained within a group of pictures; then they must find a clue to the next letter's puzzle. Lush full-color illustrations present a startling view of everyday objects.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 2-6-- An alphabet book for children who enjoy visual puzzles and word play. Each letter is illustrated with four panels--the first three pictures depict different views of the same object; the fourth picture shows the homophone or homonym. For example, the letter A is illustrated with three pictures of an ant; the final frame shows an elderly woman--an aunt. The fourth frames also offer visual clues as to what will appear on the next page. In this case, the aunt is wearing a brooch decorated with bowling pins. Some of the word couplings are quite clever and successful; others seem forced or feature objects unfamiliar to many children. F is illustrated with a fishing fly and a soaring baseball, presumably a fly ball; J with pictures of jam or jelly and a group of musicians during a "jam" session. Those illustrations will challenge sophisticated children, but will overwhelm and frustrate younger readers. The artwork, featuring vibrant colors and careful design, is impressive and consistently effective. An innovative premise--a less than perfect execution. --Heide Piehler, Shorewood Public Library, WI
