Munro presents fans of her previous maze challenges new fodder to delight and intrigue. From A (airport) to Z (zookeeper), Munro’s fantastical paintings provide an abundance of detail to entrance and enchant even the most jaded maze-whiz. The 26 letters of the alphabet form the base of each maze, which is based on a theme beginning with the same letter. On each page, she adds a list of items to look for while wiggling through the mazes. Munro’s paintings are just plain fun to look at even if the reader is not a fan of mazes and brain teasers. However, for enthusiasts, Munro offers challenges galore, and for those who are stumped, an answer key is provided in the endpages. The author’s latest tale is a satisfying follow-up to Amazement Park (2005) for fans and bound to attract newcomers as well. (Picture book. 7-11)
