This book is great for kids who are into mysteries, clues, and decoding. Even better, this is great for kids who are into awesome illustrations. Even better, even better, this poem features some pretty sweetly rhyming pages. I was shocked. I owned Animalia as a kid, but didn't realize Graeme Base could be a pretty good writer! Secret aside for parents: If your child is not a decoder, figure out the mystery ahead of time, or look it up on the Internet. Luckily, the "help" pages are now taped together in the back of the book rather than having to send a mail order off for them, but even so. Your kids interests will dwindle once there is no new artwork if they aren't into mysteries. For ages 10-14. I know this might be a hard sell because it is a picture book, but I have trouble believing younger kids could really understand the book, even if they enjoy the pictures.
