Can You See What I See?: Treasure ShipWalter Wick . Scholastic/Cartwheel , $13.99 (40p) ISBN 978-0-439-02643-7
The latest in Wick's long-running series centers on the story of a wrecked ship, the Bountiful , with luminous results. Striking photographic compositions illuminate the ship and its treasure; in all, they contain 200+ hidden objects and were created using digital photography with miniature and full-scale sets. Little by little, the “camera” pulls back to show wider views, revealing that the Bountiful is actually a ship in a bottle, in a knick-knack shop, in a seaside town, pictured in a postcard. The entrancing, detail-rich visuals and ingenious twist will likely stir readers' imaginations. All ages. (Apr.)
