US Kirkus Review » In a follow-up to Can You Find It? (2002), which featured paintings from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, Cressy assembles a group of complex and richly detailed works of art for this up-scale Where's Waldo? This time, she goes to three other American museums as well as seven European collections. For Dionysius the Areopagite Converting the Pagan Philosophers, she asks, "In this painting of astronomers can you find 1 bull's head, 2 people writing, 2 yellow feet, 2 winged women, 4 people pointing to the sky, 1 bridge, 2 flaming hats, 3 obelisks?" Some of the challenging tasks set forth here may stump even the most detail-oriented six-year-old; luckily, there's an answer key in the back that includes a bit more about the picture and artist. The pictures themselves do not lack interest: there are battle scenes, castles, horses, coronations and tall ships. Some scenes, such as one from Hieronymus Bosch and others of that ilk, are not for the faint of heart. Still, this is an arresting collection of artwork for parent and child to pore over and explore. (Picture book/nonfiction. 6-10) (Kirkus Reviews)
