Andrew Knapp is a talented photographer. There are a lot of talented photographers around, but what sets Andrew apart is his assistant and BFF Momo, a brown eyed, totally adorable Border Collie.
Momo has a talent for hiding in Andrew’s photos, and finding Momo is a great game for people of all ages. It’s like finding Waldo except that Momo is cuter, the setting is more attractive and it is easier to find Momo.
Andrew and Momo first attracted attention on Instagram where they have over 250,000 fans. I first wrote about them in 2013. Then they put some photos together and Andrew was gracious enough to send me the first very successful book in 2014.
This is their second book. The photos are more diverse and Momo is just as cute.
Andrew sold his house in Ontario and he and Momo embarked on a 15,000 mile road trip in their gold Volkswagen bus. The trip took them down the New England coast to the Gulf states, across the southwest, up the California coast to Canada and across southern Canada back to their home in Ontario.
Along the way Momo found hiding places in front of the White House, sitting in Grand Central Station, beside the Big Duck, under Babe the Blue Ox and in the shadow of the Golden Gate Bridge among over 100 familiar and unusual photograph settings.
As with the first book nothing has been spared in producing first rate quality, from the vivid full page full cover photos to the heavyweight card stock pages.
My only criticism is that I wish he had identified the setting on the page where the photo was featured instead of in the answer key at the back of the book.
While most books have a limited target audience, Find Momo Coast to Coast can be enjoyed by tiny toddlers to the oldest adult. This is a perfect gift for anyone, but you'll want to find all the Momos before you give it away.
We give Momo an enthusiastic thumbs- and dewclaws-up.
And nothing bad happens to a dog (or a human) in this book.
