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.

I got this for my mom (librarian before she retired) to give to my niece's child who just started pre-school. He likes to "find" things in books, so "Where's Waldo?" and "I Spy" are the perfect beginning books for him.

Love these books! I wanted to get one for my daughter after remembering how much I loved them as a kid. We have a blast trying to find Waldo, Welda, The Wizard, Odlaw, and Woof. Love that they make some characters easier than others and change the difficulty on every page. We've had this book for about 8 months and have looked through it countless times and still haven't found Woof in some of the pictures! So, this book will provide a lot of fun for a long time :)

Bought this book for my boys so they can grow up reading the books I grew up with. Its a classic and its a fun activity with the kiddos. I remember searching for waldo but I didn't realize there was other things you could search for too which was neat for us adults with bad vision :) Book came in great condition!

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.
