SEARCH AND SPOT ANIMALS by Laura Ljungkvist.  New York:  Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing, 2015.  32p. ISBN 978-0-544-54005-7 hc. $16.99   Gr. PreK-1   E PIC

Not quite the same as Martin Hanford's WHERE'S WALDO books, this collection of visual puzzles is based on the line art of Laura Ljungkvist.  Multi-layered illustrations combine silhouette, outline, and texture to create busy pages that challenge the reader's sense of pattern while searching for designated animals.  Young readers and parents will enjoy working through this book together while feasting their eyes on the vivid colors.  A second book is in the works for late in 2016 titled SEARCH AND SPOT GO featuring cars and trucks and modes of transportation. This is a new series to keep an eye on!
