If staying home during the coronavirus pandemic has you and your family going up the wall with boredom, then you have to try this challenging seek-and-find puzzle from master illustrator Gergely Dudás. Dudás, who is better known as Dudolf, is a beloved fixture not just on bookstore shelves thanks to his works like “Fox & Rabbit,” but he is also celebrated for his colorful and interactive puzzles that keep us on our virtual toes.
Right now, people are scratching their heads as they try to solve his squirrel and mouse puzzle, which he posted on Facebook. (He also posts puzzles on Instagram.) The monochromatic image features rows of brown and tan squirrels, with acorns and apples intermittently sprinkled in. Somewhere in this adorable little image is a mouse. Can you find him? (Scroll down to the bottom of the article if you need a hint or just want to find the answer right away. We won’t judge!)

Dudolf also has many holiday puzzles that will satisfy your inner sleuth. He has a Christmas compilation of puzzles on his website featuring snowmen, reindeers and Santa Claus himself to keep you busy this holiday season.
