``Riddle-me/riddle-me-ree,/I see something/you don't see'' begins each of the 13 easily solved riddles in a collection whose cheerful illustrations broadly hint at the answers: ``Round like a plate,/flat as a chip,/holes like eyes,/but can't see a bit'' concludes the riddle facing a picture that focuses on a child buttoning her little brother's shirt; a needle and thread on the text page provides still another clue. In case anyone is still stumped, the answers, verbal and pictorial, are given on the last page. For young children, an attractive introduction to the concept of riddles--one that's sure to give them the taste of success. In her sunny pen and watercolor illustrations, Koontz provides continuity by setting the action in and around the home of the two children, with their fubsy dog and cat as amusing additional characters.

PreSchool-Grade 1-- Thirteen easy riddles that are sure to delight young readers. Each double-page spread sports a riddle told in rhyme with a visual clue above the text and the answer hidden in the domestic scene on the facing page. Some of the puzzles are clever; others are fairly obvious, but all have definite child appeal. The watercolor illustrations are pleasant if not particularly distinctive, and they do a commendable job of incorporating both the object to be guessed and the clue. For those wanting to check their responses, a pictorial answer page is provided. Whether shared one-on-one or with a class, the rhymes will encourage children to make up riddles of their own. Pair it with Guarino's Is Your Mama a Llama? (Scholastic, 1989) for a delightful program. --Nancy Menaldi-Scanlan, Wheeler School, Providence, RI
