Book review: Follow Finn, by Peter Goes

Goes, Peter. Follow Finn. “A search-and-find maze book.” Gecko Press, 2017 (American edition 2018). Unpaged. $16.99. ISBN 9781776571857. Ages 5-12. P9Q9.

Follow Finn is a fun, beautiful search and find book that will provide children of a range of ages with a challenge. The illustrations are unusual- each spread has a different main color, black and white. Readers will have to look closely to find the missing items, and the text is very small so younger readers may need some help. I love the artistic style and the tiny details, and I think kids and parents alike will have fun looking for the missing items and at everything else! The author/ illustrator’s deep background in science and his rich imagination have created a really wonderful book.

VERDICT: Libraries that have a Waldo following will find this a beautiful, entertaining and very different option.
