KIRKUS REVIEW

Munro’s latest maze-craze offering expands upon the concept of her earlier work, Mazescapes (2001). This time, readers have an aerial view of an amusement park and are instructed to wind their way through the Gordian knot of paths. En route, readers are encouraged to locate Mrs. McCourt and her class and search out the ice cream stand and balloon man tucked into every scene. For younger readers—or those with slightly lower frustration levels—Munro provides an easier path through the park via a red train and its tracks. The twelve mazes cover typical amusement park attractions. From wild roller coaster rides and far-out space travel to dinosaur landscapes, Munro’s mazes offer an intriguing venue for nearly every taste. Intricate, colored-ink illustrations beguile the eye with their exquisite attention to detail. Munro’s collection of brainteasers, which are interesting to peruse—as well as a healthy challenge to maze enthusiasts—offer readers many hours of interactive enjoyment. An answer key is provided in the end pages. (Picture book. 6+)
