This is a great book which is very much in the style of Where's Wally but not so crammed that a younger child couldn't spot Migloo or any of the other characters etc that are on each page. The illustrations are bright and colourful and there is absolutely tons of little searches and tasks to keep a child amused. The book is a little bit too old for my daughter at the moment although she does like looking through the pages and spotting things alongside myself and my slightly older son.
There is an actual story to the book and not just a character search on each page which I really like and adds another element to the book itself. The story follows a little dog called Migloo and his adventure packed day through the town of Sunnytow. There are tons of characters throughout the book and these are also all individually introduced on the first few pages. On each page there are little question time boxes that ask for your child to search for certain characters and items but there is also a further two pages of activites on William Bee's Busy Page at the back of the book so plenty to keep your child entertained and searching in this book.
A great finding/searching book which is in the style of Where's Wally but also has an actual story to it too. My son likes this book although I suspect he's still a little too young to completely benefit from the book but he keeps asking for the story to be read and we keep doing little searches too.
It's a very bright and full book of interesting things to look for and to look at. Migloo, our dog, is up and hungry and takes us on a tour of his day, round his town - in factories, fire stations, school, garage, parks. He is accompanied on the pages by a wealth of other characters who all have their own little stories as well.
We found this very long for bedtime, it's definitely more for children who can read it themselves and spend time slowly looking through the pages and searching for the items it asks for. The character page alone amounts to three sides. It's very detailed, which I know I would have loved at age 7 or 8. I would have loved poring over the pages as I did over Where's Wally.
The style of drawing is lovely, little squat characters that look like toys. I like the range of scenes included and the story of Migloo's day round his town. At the end of the book is a double page spread of further questions for those with eagle eyes - spotting items from all the previous pages and having instant feedback on the answers.
Overall, this really is a good book but definitely has to be given to a child of the right age. I would say it's one for a child to pore over by themselves or with a friend, rather than with a parent, so it's for readers. Ages 6 or 7 to around 10 will make the most of it.
There is so much to spot in this book - and despite the number of times we have read it there is always something new that takes her attention and we talk about.
I think this is best suited to 6-7 year old, unless you have a toddler who is impressively good at search and find books like this!
She especially enjoys the fold out pages towards the end.
A real gem of a book and I am sure we will be looking out for further Migloo adventures in the future
Please note that the publisher provided this book free of charge in exchange for a review, please note that all words and opinions are my own.
Every page has a host of things happening, with loads of characters and things to find, a very busy book which will be read over and over creating a different conversation every time, a great book for school age and under.
I was given this for an honest and fair review.
