Explorable search and find puzzles
Author Paul Adshead had a very popular book in the 90s called Puzzle Island - much in the same vein as Graeme Base's mix of 'search and find' and puzzles. Readers work through the book exploring detailed imagery to find hidden animals, with their names written in text framing the page.
Beyond that Adshead has published several other puzzle books - where readers find hidden owls, geography and solve word puzzles. These are enjoyable books, well illustrated with puzzles that keep giving.
Readers can solve the puzzle by counting the birds in the roosting tree as they gather at the urging of an insomniac snail to drown out the snores of a slumbering owl.
This parody on a famous story is intended to make geography fun. It asks the reader whether they can discover the countries visited by Phineas and his daughter using a trail of clues.
