Editor opinion

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."

My husband and I loved these books as children in the 90s, so we had to get them for our 4 year old when he was old enough to search for Waldo and his friends. We love the Wonder Book!@@@@Highly highly recommend for hours of entertainment

This is another book which is one in a series, one which is far more intricate and challenging than earlier ones, Parents with small children should start with the first WALDO books and move on to increasing levels of difficulty as the child ages. The object is to locate the real character Waldo amidst al the wanna-bees, pretend Waldos and other characters similarly dressed. The later books in the series, and this is definitely one of them, are full of jam-packed pages that parents and kids can work on together, for many years, with books of increasing difficulty. These are books which parent can use with their older children as well, and that can help keep up bonded relationships at times when they are growing closer to their peers.@@@@

Wonderfully challenging. We have had it for about two months now and still can't locate Waldo on all the pages. I really like the challenge and it makes the book last longer. I would have been pretty disappointed in fact if we had been able to locate him on all the pages on the first day. Illustrations are beautiful and very very detailed. Each time I look at the pages, we discover new things that we missed previously. This book it great;@@@@Great for parents with older children

Some low resolution pages mar an otherwise amazing coloring book. I never knew I needed this in my life. Wonder if the UK version has higher quality printing. You shouldn't be able to see individual pixels!@@@@Great family activity!

It made my 23-year-old roommate STFU and stop fighting with her boyfriend. They would sit in their sleeping bag and concentrate to find Waldo, Walda, Odlaw, the wizard and that stupid dog. They would follow Waldo's adventures, learn to share and excercize their minds. Excellent gift for a hobo who lives in a tent with two other people, and who just needs some peace and quiet. Instant silence. The book is fun and is a funny work of art as well. Would recommend to anyone young and young at heart.@@@@Very busy pages
