Sean has been a fan of the I Spy books since he was two. Many of the books have been turned into computer games. We've played is I Spy Fun House, I Spy Spooky House and I Spy Mystery. After having won the I Spy Fun House game about a dozen times we found a copy of the book to add to our I Spy library.

I Spy Fun House the book has to be hardest and most disturbing to read of the series. The photographs consist of lots and lots of creepy looking clown toys, bright and clashing colors and mirrors. A

I have seen several of these books on which Jean Marzollo and photographer Walter Wick are joined together as a team, but perhaps this one takes the cake.
A few of the scenes appear as if they could hide almost nothing at all, but these such pictures usually turn out to be the most difficult ones. The imaginative mind of Walter Wick ostensibly knows no limit, and the I Spy books are a wonderful forum for his creative endeavors. This is one of those books that would be ideal for taking on a long

A classic of horror. The clowns are freaky enough, but the hypnotized man without eyes and that warped screaming cat, along with the king of masks ought to be criminal to expose to small children. Everything is lit from below to make them look extra frightening. I haven't yet mentioned the warped shadows, the mirror people, or the spiders. What the heck were these people thinking.

I loved these books whenever I was in Elementary school.
It kept me busy and made me use my noggin.

So if you're trying to work and your kids on getting on your nerves, plop them on the couch with one of these. =D
A collection of seek and find puzzles for school-agers with rhyming text and bonus challenges.

This title is themed around the circus/carnival. The fun house mirrors make this title especially challenging and of course, fun!

OK, so am I the only one who had a hard time finding that match on pp. 22-23? That took me forever.

There is a creepy clown doll on almost every page. This book could have been better.

One thing my son did like was some of the pages you could turn upside down and see more pictures.
