I See Something You Don't See: 9

Robin Michal Koontz, Author Dutton Books $13 (32p) ISBN 978-0-525-65077-5
``Riddle-me, Riddle-me-ree. I see something you don't see!'' Here's a fresh book of riddles delivered in a rhyming, narrative format. As a brother and sister wake up, eat breakfast, work through their morning, play through their afternoon and wind down on Grandma's porch under the evening sky, every activity inspires a riddle. Koontz attempts no easy task inventing original riddles and fitting traditional ones into a smoothly flowing pictorial story without added text. Her warm pastels portray agreeably rounded characters who enhance curiosity and draw the reader in by providing needed clues to solve the riddles. The fact that the conundrums are not obvious adds to the book's attraction and interest. (For the impatient problem-solver, answers are pictured on the final page.) Ages 4-8. (Feb.)
