Bummed I didn't realize it's mini and that our copy didn't come with the magnifying glass. Not exactly the fun gift I was hoping for my child.

Tiny tiny

This is so tiny, I see now that it must have been the purpose of the book since it comes with a magnifying glass (mine didn't when I got it) luckily we had one at home so the kids could search for a while - they became bored pretty quick and moved on so I don't think it'll stay with us - we will look for a bigger Waldo book next time

Waldo is one of my favorite books

This book was listed in good condition, but I do not consider the book I received as "good" condition. Many of the pages had been taped several times and I do not believe it will last in my classroom for more than a week. The other books I ordered were in very good condition despite being categorized as "good" condition. I was disappointed with this particular copy.

Childhood memories

I loved this book growing up so am I suprised I purchased this book and my husband and I still love to find Waldo. No way!! Where is Waldo is timeless and still fun! Must have for any family!!

Great book for kids and adults alike.

My kids have had hours of enjoyment finding items in these books. I would highly recommend to anyone. Helps kids and adults develop that ability to find anything amidst chaos.

great children's book

Este es un libro muy bueno para el entretenimiento de todos los ninos de cualquier edad, se los recomiendo.

Way Too Much Fun

I first got turned onto Waldo books while in college. I was working at a small bookstore, and spied a paperback of Where's Waldo? in Hollywood. I've had it all these years, but recently brought it out of the basement for my 7 year old son. He was thrilled with that book, so I got him Where's Waldo?: The Wonder Book in hardback for Christmas. While the Hollywood book is difficult, The Wonder Book also has some difficult scenes! In one, I STILL haven't found Wizard Whitebeard. Arggh! Martin Handford is the creator of the Where's Waldo? books, which features elaborately detailed scenes, hidden objects, and visual puns. The reclusive, bespectaled author works fervently for EIGHT WEEKS for EACH of the 2-page spreads on these books. This means that the Where's Waldo Wonder Book took him 1.8 years to create! Amazing! My son and I love to pore over the pages--not only looking for Waldo, Wenda, Wizard Whitebeard, Odlaw, and Woof--but also other clues. For example, Wenda always loses a camera, Woof a bone, the Wizard a scroll, and so on. BUT, at the end of the book, there are TWO pages of checklists for other things to find in EACH of the visual puzzles! Some are quite hard to find. For example, a clown follows Waldo and his friends all through the end of the book. One of the challenges is to find the scene in the book where the clown changes the color of his hat band. The creative scenes you'll find in the Wonder Book include: *Once Upon a Page *Clown Town *The Fantastic Flower Garden *The Odlaw Swamp *The Might Fruit Fright *The Corridors of Time *The Game of Games *The Battle of the Bands *Toys! Toys! Toys! *Bright Lights and Night Frights *The Cake Factory *The Land of Woofs Odlaw Swamp and Land of Woofs are *especially* tricky, because all the characters look the same...except for one defining element. As with all the Waldo books, there's also some great visual puns that will tickle adult funny bones. Make no mistake...the Where's Waldo? series isn't just for kids! I love searching for the characters and items as a way of relaxing and enjoying my son's company. Highly recommended!

Very satisfying, vibrantly printed

This is another excellent Where's Waldo -- almost as sublime as "The Fantastic Journey", a little harder, and just as engaging. As a piece of artwork it's clear that Handford's style is maturing: his lines are more precise, there are more individuals packed into every open space, and there's also a slightly more vibrant color palette. Unlike the other four Waldo books, these twelve scenes are printed digitally. Each miniscule pixelated line edge can be seen upon close inspection, a little disconcerting at first but very crisp and clear -- and probably one reason for Handford's new stylistic developments here.

A beautiful book you'll share with your children

The simplicity of the concept on this book (and the whole series for that matter) makes it extremely enjoyable not only for any kid but for the fathers as well. The possibilities are endless when you start to create new games based on the ideas present no the last pages of the books or by simply looking at any page and discover countless characters. Any father will be amazed by all the time is possible to share with your kid playing "Where is Wally" or any other character. On top of that, after a while it easily becomes "replayable" as it is impossible to keep in mind the different locations. Simplicity at its best makes this book a gem.
