From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3-In this "Waldo" clone, Thomas and Esmerelda are spending a day at Uncle Hector MacPelican's castle. There is no story line linking the scenes; each double-page spread shows a different section of the castle and features things to count and find, a maze, and a treasure hunt. The clues are listed in boxes at the tops of the pages. The very colorful and detailed artwork is done in pen and watercolor. Children will find the challenges easier than those in Handford's titles or Marzollo's "I Spy" books (Scholastic). A fun, ephemeral choice for collections in which demand for puzzle and "find it" books is high.
