An all-you-can-eat buffet of images greet readers in Staake’s interactive seek-and-find book, a companion to Look! A Book! (2010). Die-cut circles provide sneak peeks of objects on the preceding and following pages (“Look! A chair! A pear! A miniature bear! A skunk! A trunk! A UFO punk!”), connecting wildly diverse spreads that visit urban, spooky, and even extraterrestrial settings. The happily hectic scenes brim with irreverent details. A zoo (“areful, or you’ll step on poo!/ Quick! Now find the crab fondue!”) features a ghost, robot, and a monster on a leash who join a tiger, in addition to the usual animal suspects, while modern art masterpieces creep out of their frames at a museum. Staake’s enthusiastic verse is contagious in a book that promises hours of offbeat entertainment. All ages. Agent: Gillian MacKenzie, the Gillian MacKenzie Agency. (Dec.)
