Hi guys and gals!
Welcome back to another day here at Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.
Today, we're slowing things down a bit because I don't know about you, but I'm drowning in bookish delight this month! Every day brings a new discovery and with it a tempting new title to dive into. Whew! It's enough to overwhelm...almost. ^-^ Now that doesn't mean I'm taking a break from the reviews...no siree. Honestly, who has the time! Seriously though, we're just gonna kick back and relax with the second release from an unexpected duo that came out of nowhere to find themselves here, there, and everywhere...and they're inviting you along for the ride! Ladies and gents, today's book of choice is...
About the book...
Momo loves to hide—and you’ll love looking for him! In this follow-up to the New York Times best seller Find Momo, the canine Instagram superstar (and his best buddy, Andrew Knapp) travel across the United States and Canada, visiting iconic landmarks and unique off-the-map marvels. Look for Momo hiding in Grand Central Station, in front of the White House, and in the French Quarter of New Orleans . . . as well as at diners, bookstores, museums, and other locales that only a seasoned road-tripper like Andrew could find. It’s part game, part photography book, and a whole lot of fun.
Part photography book, part search-and-find, it's a read that works for all ages on multiple levels. Paired with the pictures is a bit of a travel log from the duos time on the road, but as informative and insightful as they are, Momo steals the show! With that in mind, here are a few that I felt needed highlighting...
Easiest to Spot: In the North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama spread pg 51...it's just a dog and his tree. A big one at that!
Most Unexpected Hiding Spot: Washington, Skylark's Hidden Cafe - Momo just pops right out of the picture! (pun intended...read it, you'll see)
Cutest Pic: Too hard to pick! If I can cheat though, I'll take the last page before you turn the back cover. You get a full fledged image of Momo that is just TOO CUTE to resist!
Hardest to Spot: There was one in the Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma spread (pg 67 specifically). I actually had to use the reveal Momo key at the back of the book!
Loving the Scenery: Buchart Gardens, Brentwood Bay, British Columbia - The greenery, flowers, and foliage is truly beautiful and Momo hiding among it all just adds to the charm.
|Besties: Momo and Andrew Knapp|
...and the list could keep going, but I'd rather let you explore it more and add your own picks! (Feel free to stop back by and share your top few too!)
Recommended read for all ages. Whether you're a fan of unique photography, search-and-finds of the picture variety, or a dog lover, this book has something for you. So, CAN you find Momo? It's not always as easy as you might think, but the fun is all in the trying!
