Alfred's Camera : A Collection of Picture Puzzles
by Ellwand, David

The reader is asked to help as Alfred searches in his various collections for his missing camera

Ages 5^-7. Ellwand moves away from the stunning black-and-white portraiture of Emma's Elephant (1997) and The Big Book of Beautiful Babies (1996) for this series of hand-tinted, find-the-hidden-items photo collages, tied together with an unobtrusive plotline involving the photographer's long-suffering pointer (posed, early William Wegman style, with various objects balanced on his head), another shutterbug, searching through huge jumbles of keys, seashells, dog biscuits, toy trucks, brushes, and the like for a lost camera. The palely colored pictures present easier visual challenges than those in Jean Marzollo and Walter Wick's I Spy series, not to mention Martin Handford's Where's Waldo and its offspring, and so should draw younger-or should that be less obsessive?-browsers.
