Walter Wick's Magic

Inside the studio of the artist/photographer of I Spy!

  • Grades: 3–5, 6–8

Kid Reporter Caitlin Wardlow recently visited Walter Wick, the creative genius behind the I Spy and Can You See What I See book series. She got an up-close look at the sets he uses for his pictures, including the set for a new book that was released April 1, Can You See What I See? Treasure Ship.

"As I was looking at the Jolly Roger set, the detail, color, and lifelike look took my breath away," Wardlow said after her visit.
