Description

Now in paperback. Waldo’s back in the picture in a brand-new adventure! Find the bespectacled traveler in never-before-seen illustrations and a slew of other novel features.

Ever the globe-trotter, Waldo is eager to show you his pictures. But not so fast—you have to find them first! Enter Odlaw’s Picture Gallery and admire thirty peculiar portraits, then try to track down their subjects in the maddeningly intricate scenes that follow. Once you’ve got the picture, handy stickers in the back let you render it suitable for framing. But your challenge is just beginning! There are hidden characters and objects to hunt for, spot-the-difference spreads, silhouettes to match with originals, and plenty more. Happy hunting—it’s truly an art!




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. The turning point came when he was asked to create a book showcasing his impressive talent, and the character Waldo was born — originally to provide a link between each scene. "I can’t tell you how pleased I am that Waldo has taken on a life of his own," Martin Handford 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.
