  About The Book

Welcome to Look-Alike Land, where the more you look, the more you see! Artist Joan Steiner has used everything from acorns and broccoli to yardsticks and zippers to create this striking three-dimensional world. Stop in at the Sweet Shop and sit down on a chair built of pretzels and crackers or stroll through the park, where pennies are cobblestones and a shoehorn becomes a slide. With more than 1,000 look-alikes to find, this book is sure to have puzzlers of all ages poring over its pages for hours on end. This best-selling book is back with a brand new series design and a striking new cover.
