Where's Hello Kitty?

I'll admit it. I don't really understand the appeal of Hello Kitty, yet the fervour surrounding any HK merchandise is crazy. You name it, it's been "kittified" and the latest addition to the range of products is the "Where's Hello Kitty?" book.

"Where's Wally" was the original "find a skinny scarf-wearing needle in a giant haystack" book and the Hello Kitty version follows the same tried and tested formula, punctuated by 'activity pages' for giggly girls (and boys, yep boys too) who love Hello Kitty's unique fashions and friends.

The book is fairly tough going for youngsters who don't quite understand the subtle differences between the Kitty you're asked to spot, and the many many very similar looking Kitties dotted all over the searchable pages.

One for older children, or slightly mad Hello Kitty-obsessive adults perhaps.

Charlotte's best bit: The "Friends quiz" halfway through the book

Daddy's favourite bit: N/A
