Synopsis

The Lost House by B.B. Cronin

A brother and sister want to go to the playground with their grandfather, but they can't leave until they find his socks...and his shoes...and his glasses...will they ever get out of Grandad's hodgepodge house? This treasure trove of a book by a brilliant debut author-illustrator prompts very young readers to search and find the missing object on each spread packed with Grandad's bric-a-brac.

Reviews

An eye-popping take on I Spy. O, the Oprah Magazine This dazzling and delightful seek and find book harkens to Maira Kalman s Max series with its whimsical drawings and unpredictable color combinations.

Real Simple [A] stylish puzzler [and]superior seek-and-find for all ages. The Wall Street Journal The Lost House is packed with vivid illustrations and enchanting experience for old and young together. Goodhousekeeping.com Kids will spend more time giggling over all the quirky stuff Grandpa s house is filled with in this search-and-find book than looking for the things they re supposed to spot. Redbook Clever, irresistible, [and] visually engaging. Kirkus Reviews Cronin s silkscreenlike images are elegant as can be, resulting in a rich and suggestive excursion into a quietly unconventional world. Publishers Weekly An artistic and creative seek-and-find book that makes for a fun interactive addition to most collections. School Library Journal A visual marvel...[it recalls] picture-book classics from the early twentieth century, but the neon palette and whimsical humor place it solidly in the modern era. Booklist
