Review: Seek And Find Cities: A Globetrotting Adventure

Join intrepid travellers Cat and Bird as they take us on an adventure through popular cities across the world and on the ultimate treasure hunt.

As they visit each city, fun facts accompany iconic items that relate to the city or country. 

The reader’s job is to locate the items amongst the city scenes depicted in the book.

Cat and Bird visit 15 cities including Toronto, Mexico City, New York and Sydney. Discover why some of these cities are so popular and destination worthy of any traveller.

The vibrant illustrations capture every aspect and will try to distract the reader from finding all the items as they try to take in all the details. The illustrations depict scenes that the City is well known for; experience Day of the Dead in Mexico City, the Christmas Market in Moscow and celebrate Chinese New Year in Beijing.

The items you will need to locate differ from scene to scene. Can you find famous landmarks, native animals, flags, clothes or traditional food? In every scene, you will also need to locate the intrepid travellers Cat and Bird.

Are you ready for the challenge? The reader will need to look high and low, inside buildings and amongst the crowds.

Do not worry if you cannot spot all the items – the answers are in the back of the book. For the more adventurous reader, there are extra items to look for in each City – these clues are also in the back of the book.

This new and exciting version of Where’s Wally will allow the reader to discover new information, explore the world and inspire a love of travelling.
