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)
