Where's Hanuman? Christopher Woods (Illustrator) , Ben McClintic (Illustrator)
Excellent book that gives hours of entertainment and fun for children and adults alike
(Amazon, Flipkart, India Plaza, Infibeam, Amazon review)
This is a book where you have to spot a character on every page - actually a double-page spread. The character is Hanuman, and there are more than a hundred other characters on each page, similarly drawn and colored, so finding Hanuman is like finding a needle in a haystack. There are 12 such double-spread pages, and on each page, not only do you have to locate Hanuman, but if you go to the end of the book, you will find a list of 12 other characters or objects that you could try and find.
If this were simply a book where only one character per page were to be spotted, this book would lose its appeal to children, and adults, very soon. However, with more than a hundred different characters to be spotted in the book, this book holds kids' attention for a far longer span of time. Furthermore, more than one child can use this book at the same time, engaged in some sort of a competition to see who can spot the character first.
Each of the twelve pages has a theme, and on each page, as I said, there's not only Hanuman but also a dozen other characters and things to be spotted.
