Overview

It's a crazy compendium of puzzles! Hands-on games and teasers keep readers busy while Waldo and friends hunt for their own missing things.

Spot-the-difference challenges, mazes, memory games, word games, doodles, tangled line teasers, and much more — find them all inside Waldo’s wonderful new book chock-full of fun things to do. As Waldo and his buddies look for everything from a lost key to a lost camera, his fans are invited to pick up a pencil and work their way through a treasure trove of brain-twisting activities. In true Waldo style, readers are challenged to go back and search for hard-to-find stuff when they finish each chapter, then sent through the whole book again on a final search before they’re done.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Nicole Peterson Davis
This is the twenty-fifth anniversary compendium of puzzling puzzles. One puzzle is a "do it yourself" version of the original Where's Waldo. There is one page that has all different types of hats, and the person using the book should draw tiny people underneath each hat to create their own scene. Another page has a word wheel, and one must find five words using three or more letters in the wheel. Of course, there is a lot of finding going on in this book, but there are also riddles, puzzles, mazes, tongue twisters, finding games, drawing, and sequence recognition games. This book gives children a fun way to use their creativity and imaginations to learn valuable skills that are helpful in all aspects of life, such as recall, memorization, sequencing, reading, and even math. The back section of the book contains an answer key for all of the puzzles in the previous pages. There are so many varied activities in this book that it would keep a middle reader occupied for several hours. Reviewer: Nicole Peterson Davis
