Happy 25 years Waldo!!

I am a big Waldo fan. I've have not remembered any time in my elementary school career where I didn't grab a Waldo book if I had one nearby. This Waldo book takes Waldo to the next level. Not only is it filled with classic Waldo activities, but it also has other puzzles and brain teasers including True/False, Crosswords, Word Ladders, Scrambles, Connect the Dots, Sodoku-esque, and Riddles. This activity book is definitel

I haven't gone through a Where's Waldo book in years and after pouring over The Search for the Lost Things, it's obvious I've been missing out.

This book is full of fun activities that can keep your nose in the book hours at a time. It is a very kid-friendly book for kids who love doing Where's Waldo? searches. But they don't look for the characters, they look for other things such as Waldo's lost key along with 25 Joker Keys and the other character's lost objects.

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.
