Wow, what a fantastic book for people of all ages. I’m playing through this book with my 9-year-old daughter and we both love it. Every page has many levels of activities, from straight-up “where’s the pickle gnome?” for the younger set, on through to logic and code challenges for older ones. The illustrations are whimsical, charming, and often laugh-out-loud funny (Owl Panda!). This book is so much fun that we wish we lived in the Wizard Pickles world.

My boys couldn’t keep their hands off this book from the moment it entered the house. It really does suit all ages. It launched my 6-year old into drawing a slew of his own search-and-find books, while my 10-year old was possessed with figuring out the hidden code puzzles. We still haven’t figured out all the puzzles, and that’s fine by me! The colorful illustrations are wonderfully imagination-inspiring, and the characters and writing style are tons of fun. I hope Chuck does another… and another…!

As a kid, I loved puzzle books, especially ones with fantasy, tons of details and a touch of craziness. This book has all of those things. And let’s not forget the illustrations because they are wonderful. There’s so much detail and all sorts of little things thrown in, making sure that one discovers something new every time they go through the pages. The puzzles themselves vary enough in difficulty to insure that a kid will have some success, while others won’t get bored.

I let my son and daughter (10 and 8) go through this, and they both adored it. Not only did they find the puzzles fun, but they enjoyed fingering through the illustrations and pointing different things out to each other. This is definitely one that my son will be placing next to his bed so he can take a peek before dozing off to sleep at night.

This is a book I can whole heartedly recommend. Between the fun puzzles and the very imaginative illustrations, kids (especially reluctant readers and knowledge buddies) will enjoy diving into this and be sucked into every page.

I received a free copy for an honest review.
