Candlewick Press, 2006, 0-7636-3043-8
The rascally Odlaw has once again created a chaotic situation. This time he has brought you thirty large portraits and it is your job to try to figure out where the people and creatures in the portraits belong. Who belongs on the sports events page and does the lost looking helmeted soldier belong on the “Monster Masterpiece” page? In addition to putting the thirty portraits back where they belong, you can also look for Waldo, Odlaw, Woof the dog, Wenda, and Wizard Whitebeard on each of the highly illustrated pages. This won’t be easy for every page is packed with all kinds of people, creatures, ships, and much more. And, as if you don’t have enough to do, don’t forget that you will also need to find Odlaw’s binoculars, the wizard’s scroll, Wenda’s camera, Woof’s bone, and Waldo’s keys.
Once again Martin Handford has created a book which will keep Waldo watchers of all ages busy for hours. As always there are checklists in the back of the book which readers can use to challenge themselves. This time the author has also included a sheet of fifty stickers, thirty of which can be used to mark the portrait characters so that you can find them again. Good hunting and have fun!
