More About Walter Wick & Carol D. Carson
My mother says that when I was a child, I walked with a bounce. This must be true because I remember having a very happy childhood.Walter Wick bio pic I grew up in rural Connecticut with three older brothers and a younger sister. We loved exploring the nearby woods. I walked the neighborhood on stilts I made from tree limbs. I made them for other kids too. I also made skateboards out of old roller skates that I took apart and fastened to pieces of plywood. I loved to tinker and build.
My first serious interest in art began with drawing and painting in high school. It was then that my brother Robert, who worked part time at a camera store, introduced me to photography. I studied photojournalism and landscape bio Picphotography at the Paier College of Art in Hamden, Connecticut. After graduating in 1973, I worked as a lab technician and product photographer in a commercial studio in Hartford. The work was not glamorous, but I was fascinated with the technical challenges of making the surfaces, shadows, and highlights look exactly right in the photographs.
Before long, I moved to New York City and started my own studio. At first it was hard to find clients. The lack of work gave me time to explore new ideas and techniques, which resulted in a small, but effective, portfolio of seven images. One of these images Walter Wickcame about almost by accident. I was organizing screws, paper clips and other odds and ends. As I began sorting, I liked the way the objects looked spread out on my light box. After hours of careful arranging, I took a picture. This photograph of odds and ends was the spark that helped inspire the first I Spy book! But that would take another 10 years.
My new portfolio was a success and I was soon busy making photographs for magazines, such as "Psychology Today" and "Discover". I also made photographic puzzles for "Games" magazine. In 1985, the "Odds and Ends" photograph caught the eye of Jean Marzollo, the editor of "Let's Find Out", a kindergarten magazine published by Scholastic. She asked me to do a colorful photograph of fasteners for a poster. bio pic walter wick
This poster, in turn, caught the eye of editors in the Scholastic book division. In 1991, Jean Marzollo and I collaborated on I Spy: A Book of Picture Riddles. With the success of the I Spy, I've had opportunities to visit schools and see firsthand how kids respond to my work. It occurred to me that subjects that have long fascinated me, science and visual perception, are of interest to kids, too.
That led to my first two solo projects: A Drop of Water: A Book of Science and Wonder and Walter Wick's Optical Tricks. When my third solo project, Can You See What I See?: Picture Puzzles to Search and Solve debuted on the “New York Times” bestseller list in 2002, a new series of search-and-find puzzle books was born. In all the years I’ve been doing photography, I’ve never had a more appreciative audience than kids. I suspect I’ll be creating children’s books for a long time to come.
Walter Wick currently resides in Winsted, in the state of Connecticut. Walter Wick was born in 1932.

I spy books are always fun and this book is great. I used it as an example for a photography class that I teach at our middle school. The students loved it
Review on "I Spy" Mar 2, 2008
I saw the book "I Spy" in a house where I was visiting and had to have it for one of my grandchildren. I found the items they asked you to find, sometimes hard if not impossible for me to find. But I figured that my 10 year old grandson could handle it and find them. I would recommend it to anyone.
Toddler fun Aug 20, 2001
My 2.5 year old son loves this. We make up our own stuff to spy and don't really use the riddles(yet). This is kind of similar to his earlier favorite book(My first word book) which I also recommend. They both have taught him many new words.
I love these books!!! Mar 24, 2001
I agree totally with the review from the reader saying " this is a MUST have for the home library ". Our home library has every I Spy book. We love these books. I Spy: a Book of Picture Riddles is a great one to start your collection. As my children 10, 8, and 5 started very young with this book. These books encourage your child to think, to learn, and to explore while they do this with fun and enjoyment. I cannot rave about these books enough because each time you open one up you have a new experience. You will enjoy the many hours of entertainment and time spent with your child as well.
