About the Author

Martin Handford, the man behind the mind-boggling Waldo books, began his career as a freelance illustrator specializing in drawing crowd scenes. "I can’t tell you how pleased I am that Waldo has taken on a life of his own," he says. "I’d like to inspire children to open their minds to explore subjects more, to be aware of what’s going on around them. I’d like them to see wonder in places that may not have occurred to them." Martin Handford lives in England.

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 spend countless hours trying to find other special characters and situations. Mentally, this activity is similar to assembling a 5000 piece jigsaw puzzle, only it's more fun.
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 ability to pick out 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.
Now when you know the basic idea of Waldo books but only want to get one (just one book can keep anyone busy for days!) and don't know which one to pick, "Where's Waldo Now" is definitely the best one in my opinion, being the most educational and interesting of the series. It features Waldo traveling through time from one era to another. He has to visit cavemen, ancient Rome, Vikings, Crusaders, a Middle Age European town, Aztecs, samurais, pirates, a royal court, Wild West, and finally a space colony.
Definitely worth the money.

Format: Hardcover
If you haven't met Waldo before, he's a funny-looking cartoon fellow who appears amid busy scenes filled with other characters and objects. Although he's always out in the open and quite distinctive, finding him takes some careful looking.
The new edition of Where's Waldo Now? has a great feature. Waldo has been moved in each illustration from the first edition of this book! So if you loved these illustrations before, here's your chance to enjoy them all over again.
The scenes start with cave man days, and move on to ancient Egypt, ancient Rome, Viking voyages, the Crusades, the Middle Ages in Europe, Aztecs, 1600 in Japan, 1750 as a pirate, 1900 at a Paris ball, the Gold Rush, and also a future look at a space colony.
Although finding Waldo is challenging enough, this fascinating volume is filled with dozens of other people and objects to seek. There are 25 Waldo watchers, each one of whom is unique to an illustration. You also get Wenda, the Wizard Whitebeard, and Odlaw in each illustration. In addition, there's a mystery character in each illustration whom you need to find on your own. (There's a clue at the end of the book if you can't figure it out.) Woof the dog appears just as a tail in each illustration. You also have Woof's bone, Wenda's camera, Wizard Whitebeard's scroll, and Odlaw's binoculars in each illustration. At the end of the book are lists of a dozen or so characters and objects to find in each specific illustration.
If you haven't seen this book before, the illustrations are done across a two-page spread filled from the edges of both pages in both directions. The characters and objects are very small. You can profitably use a magnifying glass if you have trouble seeing small things. Bright light is a must!

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Let's begin by a simple disclaimer. I was born when this book series first started and had the distinct pleasure of being able to read it while growing up (I had the red one). This book not only provided long hours of entertainment but also introduced my personal love for history and travel. Viewing the pyramids, seeing the crusades, and much more were incredible; even though much literal history was not present.

Sometime at 12 years old or so, this book became lost and I did not own one again until just this week... at 25 years old. Not surprising it made such an impact that my BA is in Anthropology with a MA to follow! I could sit there for hours viewing the multitudes of small scenes throughout the book. Not only is there a scene on a macro level but also so many interactions occurring on micro levels which is what provides the most excitement for me. The artist spent so much time in providing these points of interest.

Maybe you have never seen the book before or "lost" it for 15 years like myself, this is truly a wonder. Just as exciting as ever and much more exciting than a "word search book." You will not be disappointed. It is vital you obtain a hardcover version though as the paperback can be difficult to open with the crease.

I love Waldo and all but in this book he is located in the same position on almost every page. There are so many wonderful spots they could hide him but they end up putting him in either the bottom left or right side of the page almost every time. The kids got thru the book very fast and they were disappointed with him being in the same place all the time. There are definitely not enough pages either.

I was 6 and 7 when my mom got me the first two "Where's Waldo" books. I started to look for Waldo, the check-list of things, and at the end went back to find every item he lost(Where's Waldo) and the books he lost(Where's Waldo Now). From that moment on I was immediately hooked, and they became one of my favorite book series.

I thought this one was just as good as "Where's Waldo", and I loved all of the historical places he went back into time. It was fun during those countless hours of fun looking for Waldo. I recommend these series of books to anyone who is a big bookworm like me, who likes search books, and anyone who likes books of history,comedy,fun, art, a memorable character and scenes. All of the scenes are my favorite, and I love at the end how Waldo ends up in the future...that sparked my imagination so much as a kid, and it still does.

It was also amazingly fun to go Medieval England,Egypt,Ancient Japan, and so many other places. The Waldos are truly amazing, and must-have's for all. The only thing I didn't like about the re-releases was the added extra characters...it makes me grateful that I still have my first editions of the first two Waldo books, so I don't have to look for the other characters in the books they didn't appear in the first place.

I give it 5 stars, because "Where's Waldo" remains one of my many favorite book series, and he is one of my favorite book characters even to this day... Also the search for him in many different places,the fun challenge of finding him, and to countless of enjoyment these books give, will forever make them dear to my heart.
