This book was such an unexpected little gem. Its not your typical kids book, it has lovely graphic patterns rather than cartoon like pictures. The little creatures are very subtly hidden and its really fun trying to find them. For example, each little senario is spread over 2 pages (double page). On the left hand page it says "Find the owl who needs her glasses..." and then the right hand page contains the graphics.

My 22 month old finds it hard to find some of them, but I think the book is probably aimed at slightly older children. I could see children of varied ages really enjoying this book. My son absolutely loves looking at the colours and patterns and I must admit, so do I! The edges of the book are rounded which is something a bit different (and less likely to poke you in the eye)! I will definately buy more copies of this book to use as gifts. Just hope more people discover this lovely book and enjoy it as much as we do!!

My 3 year old loved this book initially and wanted to read it every night. the images are fabulous and reminsicent of Cath Kidston/ retro Liberty prints. They vary in difficulty and it was interesting to see which ones my daughter found hard to find compared with the ones I found difficult - there was quite a mismatch.
It works on the same principle as where's wally but it is infintely more desirable!
Whilst we must have read this book 10-15 times, the novelty has worn off since we know where to look now and it means we turn the pages ever so quickly. It would make a great computer game if the images changed regularly.
Our favourite page is the last where you have to work out which creature is missing. We never rememeber so we spend time looking for all the creatures each time.

I recommend this book thoroughly but I have not scored it highly since, unlike many of my favourite children's books, this is not one to be read again and again since once you have found the creatures, they are easy to find again.

Perhaps I should put it away for a bit and get it out again in 6 months?

However, IT would be an investment buy for a school or a library.

This book sounded intriguing and a different concept to share with my 2 year old, but I was very disappointed when it arrived. The patterns are highly-stylised graphics and the hidden creatures are just too abstract - this would be a book where the child would simply need to focus on remembering the thing to spot, rather than a book to stimulate discussion and exploration.
This is also the third book I have returned to Amazon lately that is in American English - I may be a bit of a pedant, but words such as 'ladybug' and 'soccer' send shivers down my spine! I do wish Amazon would have a 'look inside' option for more books, or indicate clearly that it is American rather than British English, as it is very frustrating and, in my opinion, renders the book wholly unsuitable.

This is a stylish book, great for trendy,arty or design orientated parents. Each page is beautiful ans actually really hard to stop. Parents apreciate the design and kids enjoy it, 3 years up as quite a challenge to find. I bought 3 of these to give as gifts as couldn't part with the first one I bought!

Wasn't sure that my child will be able to handle this book as she just turned 2 years BUT it was no problem for her at all. The only animal that was a little bit harder and took her a second glance was the one on the first page. She was really curious and kept asking for 'another animal'...
I'm really surprised by her abilities and I thing that it's not necessery for a parent to wait for his/her child to grow bigger and then buy this book.

The secong book: 'Spot it again' seemed a bit harder to her, but as a parent I think you must get 'Spot it' in order to continue with 'Spot it again'. Kind of easy handling with the difficulty and the fun of the game :)

Great book for toddlers who like to find things in the pictures. The sequel "Spot it again" is even better!

beautifully illustrated and helpful for children to begin to learn about emotions, as well as simple fun for children and adults. my two year old daughter loves this book and will happily look through it by herself.

Daughter loves this. At 4, she knew where everything was after the first time of reading the book, but she loves turning the page and finding the animal as quick as she can now.

My two year old can spot all the animals, she loves it, I particularly love the artsy feel of the book and the rounded corners, it has great paper too, a brilliant gift.
