" Beautiful, subtle seek and find told through short letters home. " said.

" The detailed drawings are simply amazing in their complexity. Takes one back to what China was once like, but also offers a puzzle. A throwback to pique historical interest. " said.

" The illustrations are stunning. " said.

" Clever seek and find book, with lots of intricate pictures to pore over. " said.

" Stunning illustrations and clever concept. Text gets repetitive. Poor Simon comes off as a bit of an airhead always losing things and Adèle as a tattletale. If Adèle and Simon are French, why are they writing to their Mama (should be Maman) in English? Maybe this was explained in an earlier book? Why did the author make the children French? As a francophone, I found this slightly off-putting. " said.

" The illustrations are jam-packed full of detail, people, colors, and beauty. I thought the story was decent. I really enjoyed the postcard aspect of it - how each adventure depicted a postcard Adele wrote to her mother. I really didn't care too much for her brother losing things in every adventure but I think kids will think it's fun to search for him and find out what he's lost. Really, the brilliant illustrations are the reason I adore this book. The canal pages are my favorite. " said.

" Beautiful illustrations rich with history. " said.

" While the illustrations in this book are not as busy and crowded as those of a "Where's Waldo?" book, they are much better. Children will have fun trying to find all the items that Simon loses through the pages. There are also brief facts about the places the children visited in China at the end. " said.
