About this book

Amazing photographs accompany a search-and-find story by Walter Wick, the creator of award-winning picture books, the author and photographer of the New York Times bestselling Can You See What I See? series, and the photographer of the bestselling I Spy series.

CAN YOU SEE WHAT I SEE? TOYLAND EXPRESS, the eighth title in the bestselling search-and-find series, follows the life of a toy train from the workshop to the attic, only to be rescued at a yard sale and brought to life once again in a new home. As readers search for more than 250 hidden objects, they will also notice how the train takes on various transformations along its journey.


Booklist Advanced Review, November 2011:
Wick\u2019s latest seek-and-find book begins in a toymaker\u2019s workshop, where an unpainted wooden train set
and many other wooden toys and parts can be seen. A rhyme challenges children to find 20 things among
the hundreds of tiny objects. The next 11 double-page spreads follow the toys\u2019 progression as they are
painted, displayed in a shop, received on a birthday, left on a bedroom floor, and repurposed in scenes
involving a snowy mountain, a circus, and a dollhouse. Forgotten in an attic, they reemerge at a yard sale,
receive repairs, and find new life in a toy-land cityscape. Wick\u2019s puzzle design and picture composition
are as masterful as his photography. An appended note offers insight into the book\u2019s subject and
acknowledges the \u201cteam of artists\u201d who contributed to it. The handsome endpapers, depicting the toys in soft-edged drawings washed with gentle colors, contrast nicely with the bright, crisply delineated photos.
Like other books in the Can You See What I See? series, this book offers practice in visual-discrimination
skills as well as a great deal of fun.
