I read some of the reviews after ordering this book...and it made me a bit nervous. Vampires? Happily, this is the same delightful book I remember, and I have loved sharing it with my grandsons. I have to admit the paperback version has a different "feel" to it. Waldo seems to fit best with a hardback book cracked open on a table, but that doesn't affect my rating. Beautiful and interesting scenes, looking at all the other characters is just as much fun as finding Waldo et. al.@@@@Good book for a child

Always wanted this book as a child (born and raised poor and never had a shot at it) and so I bought it for myself for Christmas. My only complaint is that I finished finding Waldo in all the scenes in about fifteen minutes, and found the rest of the "can you find" to be equally easy. Should have tackled this book as a seven-year-old child rather than a 59-year-old man in a tinge of nostalgia. But nothing wrong with this book...for children. It did help get me through a rather lonesome Christmas day.@@@@Great concept. Inconsistent print quality

Bought it for my 4 year old grandson and he LOVES this book! Actually he's obsessed with it. He only want me to read this to him at bedtime when i watch him and honestly I think too hard to find the characters and their list belonging thats asked that you find on every. This Waldo book is WAY busy and I am so glad when he falls to sleep working the first or second page so I don't have to read this whole book of too busy of art on each page. Very frustrating to look at the tiny, tiny way too busy pages and NEVER find Waldo! But he likes it so I do what any good grandma does and I read it, every time.@@@@Happily, this is the same delightful book I remember

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.@@@@

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!
