This beautifully illustrated book features 15 full-spread illustrations of intricate, magical mazes. Take a trip through a fantastic world of underground cities, hot-air balloons, tree-top towns and haunted houses. Trace your way through each maze, spot the clues and solve the extra mystery challenges along the way. Hours of puzzle fun, for all maze detectives aged 8+. A page of answers with the routes through the mazes and other solutions is included at the end of the book.
My Thoughts
I am a huge fan of puzzle books, from word searches to Sudoku. Anything that can keep my brain working and pass a few hours is sure to grab my attention. When I first heard about Pierre the Maze Detective: The Search for the Stolen Maze Stone I didn't even have to look closer, I knew it was a book I wanted to try out.

Pierre the Maze Detective: The Search for the Stolen Maze Stone is a whole lot more than a maze book, it's like Where's Wally on a bigger scale. You have the maze, you have special tasks to complete like finding the stars, or looking for certain items that are relevant to the page itself.

Each page is a whole new adventure, with a different scene to navigate, getting harder as the book progresses. The imagery within the pages of Pierre the Maze Detective: The Search for the Stolen Maze Stone were nothing short of amazing. The colours are sharp and bright with great attention to detail. I had fun completing a few pages myself using a pen, but also left some blank for my niece and nephew, who love puzzles just as much as I do, to have a go.
