Welcome to Mamoko

Aleksandra Mizielinska and Daniel Mizielinski. Candlewick/Big Picture, $17.99 (16p) ISBN 978-0-7636-6891-4
“Use your eyes!” urge the Mizielinskis on the cover of this large-format board book first published in Poland. Kids will need to do just that as they become immersed in the busy and strangely captivating cartoon world of Mamoko. The opening pages introduce more than a dozen animals with mysteries of their own (“Ada Chirp has someone on her tail. Who is watching her every move?”). Readers will need to comb the wordless scenes that follow, Where’s Waldo?–style, for the answer to that and other enticing questions. Ages 4–8. (Sept.)
