    Don’t get much for your money although the quality is good and the pages are beautifully illustrated. Both my 4 & 6 year olds love the book so that’s all that matters really!

    A beautiful book, gorgeous drawings and colours. There aren’t many pages- but on every double page spread there is a picture of a fairy tale with items/people hidden in the pictures you have to find. I wouldn’t pay RRP for it- I don’t think it is thick enough to warrant that price, however half price would be good value.

    This caught my eye in the library. My son is a little too young for Where’s Wally, but I like him to practice looking for things in pictures (like Can you see Sassoon?), and this has the advantage of using scenes from famous fairy tales, so familiar characters and stories are there and can be talked about.

    We loved this. He’s nearly 4 and concentrated really well, recognising some scenes without needing a prompt (Hansel and Gretel features the most delicious house!).

    On each page it’s not too onerous, you’d spend maybe 3-5 minutes (depending on how much help you offer) searching for the 10-12 items and people it asks for. Sometimes multiple numbers are needed (5 acorns, 3 bats). And in the next pictures sometime and characters can be seen again, so it’s entertaining noticing them in the wrong scene.

    We knew almost all the stories but even if you don’t it’s still fun to search and there’s a lot going on, just like in Where’s Wally. It prompted me to find The Pied Piper book actually, so he’d know the story.

    A few illustrations were odd – Aladdin’s genie looks like Kang/Kodos from The Simpsons, and the princess isn’t called Jasmine but the original name from the Arabian Nights (I think), which children probably won’t know.

    It’s good to search for a number of something, it really helps memory and concentration and the pictures are good enough to remind a child of the whole story outside of the scene.

    Loved the style of drawing – Wally-like in a way but different at the same time.

    Definitely has longevity and can be looked at multiple times, and either with an adult or without. Would make a great Christmas presents for 3-6 year olds.
