Walter Wick Books

Walter Wick’s books are the result of boundless imagination and carefully choreographed photographs. Alongside the photographs of many of his books,  a deceptively simple verse instructs youngsters to spot specific items in the picture.  Wick’s puzzles can be quite challenging to complet and the pages can easily keep kids happily occupied for hours and coming back for return visits.

"For some fun books to enjoy with the whole family, try the "I Spy" and "Can You See What I See?" books by Walter Wick.  In these books, there will be a list of items to be found in a bigger picture, consisting of lots and lots and lots of things!  The list comes in rhymes. The starter books help teach the young ones to read.  Will help everyone in the family, too, in improving observation skills.  My 4-year-old son just loves these books!  He keeps them by the bedside, for easy reach. 

These are available in the library.  That’s where i discovered them, when i almost joyfully shouted, but remembered where i was, just in time  🙂 " dnbll

I Spy Gold Challenger

I Spy – A Book of Picture Riddles

Walter Wick books price

Hi!  The one i visited was Kinokuniya at Ngee Ann (book lovers’ heaven!   ).  The I Spy starter books (reader level 1) are around $7, they’re paperback ones.  The big I Spy books are hardbound and range from $21-$25.  There’s only 1 book i found at Popular Simei (which is also availale at Kino), the I Spy Super Challenger, hardbound, costing 20.99.  Kinokuniya’s more pricey but carry more titles (or maybe i just haven’t found the right Popular branch yet).  For detailed prices and other titles, you can try their Bookweb Singapore site. 

Would love to know, too, where to get cheaper ones; even 2nd hand ones also ok 


Kinokuniya? Ok.. chop plus guarantee arh!! Which outlet and did ya manage to peep how much?

 Hi, there!  I found a number of them are available in Kinokuniya and some in Popular.  Haven’t combed thru Borders yet, though.  The MPH branch i went to, CityLink mall, did not carry them, but am not sure if other MPH branches have.

Hope this helps 🙂

Beautiful Books!

Beautiful books they are indeed!

Can share where to purchase these books in Singapore?

Will BORDERS or MPH carry them and roughly about how much?


my son loves the series as

my son loves the series as well and he can spplend hours looking at the books. One word of caution, remember to let your kids take breaks in between by looking far. I somehow feel the books contributed to his short sightedness, because he really used to stare at the pictures

my dd1 likes them too!

she started off with the i spy cd-rom series. then, we found out that there were books too. we found a few at the library but also bought a few to keep. and yes, sometimes, it’s really tough for the adults too, so i feel rather elated when i spot something that had eluded me for so long.
