Review

It's going to be one of the big stocking fillers this Christmas (The Sun)

Product Description

Over the past year we have seen the humble, inquisitive meerkat take over the world, and in "Where's the Meerkat?" that is literally the case. A family of meerkats are making a round-the-world trip, visiting some of the world's most famous and popular places and your task is to spot them in the crowd. Each page is intricately illustrated in full colour with a checklist of items and people to spot along with the meerkats.

This is a fixed format e-book, suitable for reading in larger colour screen devices.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another success.. 16 Nov 2011
By RJW VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I love books like this. Coffee table fun for everyone.
I already have all the Where's Wally books, Where's Bin Laden and Where's the Stig. This meercat book will sit nicely amongst the others.

It's got clear pictures, its well drawn and there are a decent amount of pages which makes it excellent value for money.

I'd recommend this book to anyone who wants a decent coffee table diversion for not much money. Would make an ideal xmas present for someone who likes those compare the meercat adverts too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great fun for all the family 29 Oct 2011
By D. Richards VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I ordered this for my six year old neice and she absolutley loved it!

The book itself is very similar to "where's wally" in that you have to find one of the meerkats among a city scene from around the world (New York, London, Sydney etc) that is full of people. At times the meerkats can be pretty obvious to find (EG standing on the great wall of china!)and at other times they can be pretty tricky!

The book is very well illistrated and the scenes from around the world are very well presented and use a lot of colour. At the start of the book you are introduced to the Family of Meerkats, along with thier hobbies and interests and then you have to find them in the city scenes as they travel around the world. Each scene has a short "introduction" box where it tells you what meerkat to look for and gives you a clue as to what they may be in that scene.

All in all this is a very well put together products and a nice take on the "where's wally" format. Sufice to say that after my niece finished it it found itslef in the hands of other family members quite a lot older than herself, which shows how this book can both appeal and entertain people all ages.

At 43 pages long you could argue its a little bit short, (hence the 4 star review) but what this book lacks in length it more than makes up for in both charm and entertainment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Familiar and fun 16 Nov 2011
By SonicQuack VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Aren't meerkats cute? Isn't "Where's Wally?" fun? This market-savvy author has his finger on the pulse. So, absolutely no points for originality, there are no surprises in here. The strength of Meerkat lies in its high calibre approach and its scale. A brief introduction the family and it's time to ferret them out (?). There's no less than seventeen double page spreads of chaos to sift through, each one a famous landmark or location as the meerkat family traverses the globe. The detail is exquisite and as eye-boggling as you hope it will be. Not particularly inventive yet it does what exactly what you want it to do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Marvellous Meerkats 4 Nov 2011
Format:Hardcover
I so enjoyed this book, and I'm heading toward middle age. The Meerkat family are cute and quirky, plus the cartoons of famous places around the world are amazing. It is tricky, finding those meerkats and there are many quirky details in the backgroud to look out for. Small children would love it, I love it, so this really is marvellous. Buy and treasure forever!

4.0 out of 5 stars Colourful and the kids love it 16 Nov 2011
By Ferris TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The same concept as the very popular Where's Wally but with the very topical Meerkat's (they are everywhere at the moment). The book is really well illustrated and both my children 5 and 7 loved it. Because the pages are really detailed and there are 10 Meerkat's to find on each page it really has kept them busy for a long time. If I had a criticism I would say that some of the Meerkat's are so small that you are not sure if you have found one or not.

This book has been great for keeping the kids quiet early evening and it's also come on car journeys with us, it's a welcome break from listening to them playing on the iTouch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Keep 'em peeled.... 29 Oct 2011
By Adam VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The 'hidden object' genre was brought to new life recently by the 'Where's Wally' series, and since then there has been a range of variants, some adult satire('Where's Bin Laden?') and others cashing in on popular charcters ('Where's the Doctor?'). This is more of a cash in, in that it exploits the current children's craze for Meerkats.

"Where's the Meerkat" is colorful and fun and will have a pretty long shelf life before completists find every last thing, as there are 15 double page picture puzzles hiding 10 meerkat characters, and added value is given with a list of extra objects to find with the answers at the back of the book.
The book begins with a brief character study of each member of this particular Meerkat family. They are going on a global tour, you see, and each picture puzzle is a famous location from around the world (Great Wall of China, Times Square etc.). There's a caption on each page that will give some limited educational information on each location woven into the story of the Meerkat's travels.

I had a go, and a bit like the pc 'hidden object' game genre, I could get most pretty quickly but then really struggled with the last few, usally giving up and having to cheat! My 6 year old lad has so far given it a curosry glance, but keeps coming back to it for other brief dips. I think it will be a hit, but it will need some gentle encouragement to develop the requisite patience.

Good value, then, and a healthy antidote to the rapid fire, rapid feedback world of Nintendo DS for your kids.
