From the Publisher
Read them all!
In the amazing original that set off the worldwide search for Waldo, the intrepid traveler is trekking from the beach to the mountains, the city to the county fair. And everywhere he goes, he somehow manages to lose more belongings to be found.
On an epic journey that takes him from a feast of gobbling gluttons to fighting foresters and deep-sea divers, Waldo accompanies the Wizard Whitebeard and seeks out the twelve scrolls that will reveal the truth about himself. Join the search and help Waldo make it to the end!
Maybe you’re good at spotting Waldo. But can you spot the difference? Head to the museum, where even the sharpest eyes are seeing double.
Waldo is wandering through the museum, where there are some devilishly difficult differences to decipher. Finding Waldo and his buddies is hard enough, but who can spot the minutiae that separate one Egyptian tablet from another? The dastardly details that make two maritime scenes unalike? The itty-bitty discrepancies between the vintage books and scrolls? With more than five hundred differences to be delineated, this brand-new spin on the art of spotting Waldo will have fans of all ages lining up to take a look.

The new edition of Where's Waldo Now? has a great feature. Waldo has been moved in each illustration from the first edition of this book! So if you loved these illustrations before, here's your chance to enjoy them all over again.
The scenes start with cave man days, and move on to ancient Egypt, ancient Rome, Viking voyages, the Crusades, the Middle Ages in Europe, Aztecs, 1600 in Japan, 1750 as a pirate, 1900 at a Paris ball, the Gold Rush, and also a future look at a space colony.
Although finding Waldo is challenging enough, this fascinating volume is filled with dozens of other people and objects to seek. There are 25 Waldo watchers, each one of whom is unique to an illustration. You also get Wenda, the Wizard Whitebeard, and Odlaw in each illustration. In addition, there's a mystery character in each illustration whom you need to find on your own. (There's a clue at the end of the book if you can't figure it out.) Woof the dog appears just as a tail in each illustration. You also have Woof's bone, Wenda's camera, Wizard Whitebeard's scroll, and Odlaw's binoculars in each illustration. At the end of the book are lists of a dozen or so characters and objects to find in each specific illustration.
If you haven't seen this book before, the illustrations are done across a two-page spread filled from the edges of both pages in both directions. The characters and objects are very small. You can profitably use a magnifying glass if you have trouble seeing small things. Bright light is a must! As always, the details are filled with lots of humorous situations that will keep you amused as you search for your goals.
This tininess is a plus for youngsters. The objects and characters seem like they are youngster size in each case!
You can also use the illustrations to teach a little world history to your youngsters.
Basically, this book can provide dozens of hours of laughter and shared fun. You can obviously set up your own searches in addition to the suggested ones.
After you finish seeing how hard it is to find a needle in a haystack that is out in the open, you should think about where else the object of your searches is hard to find. How about locating loyal, considerate friends whom you enjoy? Or a great job? Or an exciting hobby? Or a life-improving book?
Look for the best . . . all around you!
