What's wrong with this famous picture? Front Page Photo Puzzles has all the challenge and fun of photo puzzles, but it features iconic photos, current and classic, from the V-J Day kiss in Times Square to Barack Obama's inauguration. Fans of photo puzzles get a visual treat with this awesome collection of famous photos that define watershed moments in history. Author Hal Buell, who edited photographs for the Associated Press for more than 40 years, has chosen images for their historical significance, pairing them with in-depth captions. These amazing photos are the basis of three different types of puzzles of all difficulty levels. Readers can compare two versions of an image to find the difference; four versions of an image to determine which one has been changed; or look at a single iconic image to determine where it has been altered. An easy-to-use answer key in the back of the book makes scoring a snap.
