My Review

Can you see what I see? A scary skull, a moon, and stairs- there's spooky fun for one who dares!

My favorite pages are....    On A scary scary night and in a scary scary castle. 
I loved the book because you can find really cool,creepy things. The reason I find this book so interesting for all ages though, is that the author makes his own models of the pictures, movie sets actually. If you look closely at each and every page, you will see so many little details on every inch of the book. Takes a look below at an example of just what Walter Wick goes through just to make his books extra special for us, so it looks really 3-D. LOOK...

Step 1: Draw a Sketch

Step 2: Make/Design the set

Step 3: paint the set

Step 4: make scary scary tree

Step 5: Complete the set/make finishing touches


And on the back of the book you can see other books like Dream Machine, Cool Collections, Night Before Christmas And Once Upon a time. those are some can you see what I see books and there A lot of fun to!!
