Synopsis

With its suspenseful treasure-hunt plot, this sparkling holiday picture book offers stunning hidden pictures and intriguing clues that lead to a surprise ending. When Tommy receives an invitation from his eccentric Aunt Jeanne, he doesn't hesitate before hopping into the taxi parked outside his house. He is whisked away to a bustling magical metropolis, but Aunt Jeanne is nowhere to be found. Instead, he discovers her rhyming clues that guide him through the decorated streets and squares of Christmas City--each more lively and beautiful than the last. Fans of the I Spy and Look-Alikes series will delight in poring over the scenes to find and count more than 200 camouflaged objects and creatures before reaching the wonderful surprise Tommy's aunt has in store: a magical meeting with Santa himself!
