Review quote

"Readers are in for a perpetually surprising-and even philosophical-adventure,"--"Publisher's Weekly," starred review "This book has the fascinating appeal of such works of visual trickery as the Waldo and Magic Eye books."" Kirkus Reviews""

Editorial reviews

Each page of this wordless book by newcomer Banyai is a close-up detail from the scene on the next page. The drawings are realistic in slightly bedazzled colors, and the effect is of a movie camera panning backward, faster and faster, beginning with the red comb of a jaunty rooster and ending with a distant view of Earth whirling through space. Along the way, several surprises unfold, as each commonplace detail is shown to be but a small piece contained in a totally unexpected scene. Once readers reach the end, they can work from back to front for a zoom-in effect. The images are not always compelling, but this book has the fascinating appeal of such works of visual trickery as the Waldo and Magic Eye books. (Kirkus Reviews)
