I SEE SOMETHING YOU DON'T SEE: A Riddle-me Picture Book by Robin Michal Koontz

I SEE SOMETHING YOU DON'T SEE: A Riddle-me Picture Book

KIRKUS REVIEW

Riddle-me/riddle-me-ree,/I see something/you don't see"" begins each of the 13 easily solved riddles in a collection whose cheerful illustrations broadly hint at the answers: ""Round like a plate,/flat as a chip,/holes like eyes,/but can't see a bit"" concludes the riddle facing a picture that focuses on a child buttoning her little brother's shirt; a needle and thread on the text page provides still another clue. In case anyone is still stumped, the answers, verbal and pictorial, are given on the last page. For young children, an attractive introduction to the concept of riddles--one that's sure to give them the taste of success. In her sunny pen and watercolor illustrations, Koontz provides continuity by setting the action in and around the home of the two children, with their fubsy dog and cat as amusing additional characters.
