The beautifully illustrated story, published by Dog Ear Publishing, unfolds piece by piece, with three clues paired with a mysterious image on each new page. For instance, a close-up image of curtains brings the following clues – “I can darken the inside world…I stay close to the wall…I am velvety soft” – and asks the question, “What am I?” When the images are combined at the end of this fascinating work, they form a complete picture that accompanies the story, a glimpse into another world.
In Mysterious View, author and illustrator Olympia Eddy uses bold brush strokes and vivid colors to create striking images of the ordinary and the extraordinary. Young children will enjoy the intense colors of the illustrations; while older children will test their critical thinking by combining the text with the image on each page and using inference to come to a logical conclusion. The final whimsical drawing brings all the elements together and inspires the reader’s imagination.
A graduate of Clemson University, Olympia Eddy has a background in graphics and a love for children’s literature. She created the idea for Mysterious View while working with kindergarten and fifth-grade students at T.C. Henderson Elementary School, in Lake Toxaway, North Carolina. She is currently working on the next book in the Mysterious Series, Mysterious Circus, where mythical creatures gather.
