Picayune, Mississippi – South Side Upper Elementary has announced that 23 of its students have become published authors through a national student publishing program.  As part of the publishing process, 4th, 5th, and 6th-grade gifted students created a hidden object puzzle book using a free publishing kit provided by Studentreasures Publishing. 

Each student chose a theme, created a visual arrangement of items related to the theme, photographed the arrangement, and wrote an original riddle to let readers know what specific items to find on the page.  The title of the book is I See.
