If you have never seen a Waldo book before, here's a short overview:
"Where's Waldo" series consists of unique colorful picture books where the illustrations are filled with hundreds of tiny characters doing all kinds of funny things. Your goal as a reader is to find Waldo, a guy in red and white shirt on all those pictures. If finding Waldo gets too easy then you can try to find his companions, his friend Wendy, Wizard Whitebeard, bad guy Odlaw, and dog Woof. And after that you can spend countless hours finding miscellaneous special items unique to each picture.
Mentally, this activity is similar to assembling a 5000 piece jigsaw puzzle, only it's more fun.
Each book follows a theme, this particular one is set in Hollywood, and every picture is a movie set. There's a black and white silent movie, some history movies, a musical, a fantasy, a western, and others.
One great thing about Waldo books is that even small children can spot Waldo as well or even better than adults, it doesn't require any skills other than good eyesight and attention to details. This makes it fun to read together and compete with your kids of virtually all ages, not just 4-8 as the Amazon reading level suggests.
"Where's Waldo: In Hollywood" has some particularly hard extra puzzles, harder than any other Waldo book that I've seen. The ultimate problem is in the inside of the back cover: there's a list of 176 character faces, almost all of which appear somewhere among the thousands of figures throughout the book. But ten of them do not, and you have to find out which ten! I don't know anyone that has successfully found all of them yet. So I challenge you to find them! :)

My son just turned 5 and received this book as a birthday present. He sits for _hours_ looking at it. He is a very physically active child and very few things hold his attention very long, but this does

This is a great book for whiling hours away-regardless of how old you are. Remember the old Laurel And Hardy short with the jigsaw puzzle with the missing piece??? That's what looking at one of these books is like!!! You will NOT put the book down untill you find a certain character-and then curse yourself for not noticing where he/she was sooner. Definitely top class entertainment!!

If you are looking for a Where's Waldo book that is very small than this is the book for you. I was hoping that it would be an 8x10 book but is is approximately half that if not smaller. You have to have very good eyesight to find anything yet alone Waldo. After I got it, I looked it up online and noticed that it said "Mini Edition." So really it is my fault for not paying attention.

My 9 year old loves Where's Waldo and this book is cute and challenging. I was just disappointed that Amazon shipped it to me in a box that was slightly too small for the book. The book was pushed down to the bottom of the box and forced to fit. By the time it arrived, the spine of the book seems to be permanently bent. Disappointing to receive a new book like this, especially when it was ordered to be a gift.

Well, there's a weird title for a review, but if you think about it this can really train a child to pay attention to detail, which is a habit helpful in many professions. So, maybe all that staring at these big busy pictures isn't a waste of time.

This is a big big book. We checked out the original version from the library and my three year old fell in love with it so we had to have our own copy.

This is a very nice hard-back edition with cool, fold-out pages to extend the look-and-find fun. This was one of the few Waldo books my eight-year-old does not have, and he will love getting this one for Christmas!
