Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

An oversized picture book with hoards of people milling around on each pageamidst this humanity readers must try to spot Waldo, identifiable by his clothing and hiking paraphernalia, in a game of concentration. It's difficult to find him in the middle of a crowd because he does not stick out head and shoulders above the teeming masses of pedestrians, beach-goers or vacationers. He's hiking his way across the world, and sees mermaids in canals, cows escaping from train cars, a helicopter chopping down flagpoles, a mummy's baby in a museum, a capsized desert island, a hat-eating giraffe and a glove attacking a man; he tells all in postcards, considerately short and friendly. Toward the end, Waldo has lost everything but his hat, and readers are expected to find those objects, too, in this amusing game of concentration amidst a sea of distractions. Waldo cuts through a maze of people and participates in numerous activities, but, unlike readers, seems to know where he is going. The pictures are astonishing in variety, detail and humor, and the pages are filled with so many people that readers will marvel at the artist's patience. All ages.

About the Author

Martin Handford began his career as a freelance illustrator specializing in drawing crowd scenes for numerous clients. The turning point came when
he was asked to create a book showcasing his singular talent, and the character Waldo was born. "I can’t tell you how pleased I am that Waldo has taken on a life of his own," says the man behind the Waldo books. "I’d like to inspire children - to open their minds, to explore more subjects, and to just be aware of what’s going on around them. I’d like them to see wonder in places that might not have occurred to them."

One of the easiest Waldo's ever. A lot of open spaces and Waldo doesn't hide like in other books he's just out in the open standing in the same pose throughout the book. Good artwork and settings, just not very tough.

The idea of the enclosed mini magnifier was good but to no avail. The images were too small and the ink was not clear. I bought it for a child, but when I could not see Waldo clearly, I knew that it would be impossible for a child. If you want to find Waldo buy the larger edition.

They don't make them like they used to. This is a regular bound hard cover book. It will not hold up better or longer than any other hard bound book. Pictures are blurry compared to the original books.

Bought this for my 5 year old who is into I Spy lately. He's completely obsessed with finding Waldo and every tiny little item in each scene. I love reliving my childhood with him, and he's actually pretty good at it.

I purchased this for my reading club. We were doing reports on Banned Books and I was surprised when this one came up on a list. I guess if enough people look at every singer tiny drawing they can come up with things that offend them. I find this hysterically funny and so did the club.

Many members had chosen high brow tomes but at the end of the day it was my "Where's Waldo" that everyone gathered around.

Today I found my first-edition "Where's Waldo" book. As I was looking through it and reading the captions that Waldo says throughout the book, it brought bck wonderful memories of my childhood.

My mom got me the first Waldo book when it first came out in 1987. She saw how much I enjoyed the book, and that I was really pouring over the pages looking for the elusive traveler, and his items in each scene, that she bought the second Where's Waldo book "Where's Waldo Now" the following year. I loved that book right away, too!

The differences between the first and second edition of Where's Waldo is somewhat numerous. First off Waldo's appearance is better drawn than he was on and in the first edition, his position has changed in each scene, new characters have been added, some of the words and things to search for have been cut-out or altered. It took me awhile to get use to the changes, but after awhile I have grown to love the updated second edition of Where's Waldo book, just as much as the first edition.

The first scene you have to spot Waldo and the newly added characters and items in is "In Town" where you find a "Happy Barber"(in the first edition he is called a "Keen Barber.") who is cutting men's heads bald,a man with goggles and a snorkel on a fountain, a man coming out of a man-hole, a waiter who isn't paying attention and so much more. From there you go to the beach which has an overdressed man wearing a winter time outfit, a cowboy, a human being stepped on, a boy who isn't allowed any ice-cream and so much more. There are several more places that Waldo explores, so go ahead and purchase this and see if you can find him there. This book and all the rest of the Waldo books will keep you hooked and looking for him hours on end. You will become a Waldo fanatic like I have been these pass twenty-three years.

I bought this for my granddaughter who is in second grade. She loved the book. The minute it arrived she was into Looking for Waldo. The book is fun and colorful. It has provided hours of fun for my granddaughter and her sisters.
