Pierre the Maze Detective: The Search for the Stolen Maze Stone written by Chihiro Maruyama, illustrated by by Hiro Kamigaki was one of the most eye-catching books of 2015. As I wrote at the time, it’s “a rich and rewarding rabbit hole ready for anyone who loves losing themselves in an adventure of almost unimaginable detail and scale.”
Last year saw the publication of a colouring book version Pierre the Maze Detective and this year my kids and I have been having great fun with a sticker book version!
Pierre the Maze Detective: The Sticker Book contains more than 800 (!) stickers you can peel off from some of the wonderful scenes from the original book (including the garage and the marvellous museum), as well as ten further pages of individual stickers. New challenges have been created specifically for this book and as well as sticking the stickers in the book, you can of course always do your own thing with them… (Inspired by Let’s Explore, we’ve been using the stickers to write wacky stories).
Here’s one of the pages with individual stickers:
Here’s one of the full spreads where you can extract stickers from – lots of boats on this page are actually stickers.
