Small enough to slip into a rucksack or carry-on case, this compact volume includes all seven Where’s Wally books in one; in other words, there are over 100 Wally scenes, teeming with people, creatures, visual jokes and strange things to spot. It’s guaranteed to keep children entertained for hours and if they need a break from searching for Wally they’ll find six postcards for colouring-in tucked inside the covers. Wally’s adventures take him all over the world so this is just the thing too to put youngsters in the mood for travel and learning about new places. ~ Andrea Reece

About the Author

Martin Handford

Martin Handford spent much of his childhood drawing and his earliest influences were cinema epics and playing with toy soldiers. At art college he continued to draw what he calls "busy and militarily correct battle scenes" which led to his job as a freelance illustrator specialising in drawing crowd scenes for numerous clients. Martin now gathers his inspiration from a huge variety of sources; films, visiting museums and art galleries, reading comics and books, and collecting ephemera and trivia. He is fascinated by crowds, and is attracted to their vibes, patterns and details – especially humour; "I love their movement and energy." Gradually, from all this meticulous research, the inspiration for a picture emerges, which Martin embellishes with his own ideas to create astonishing scenes. Each picture takes Martin months to draw. "As I work my way through a picture, I add Wally when I come to what I feel is a good place to hide him," he explains. Read more about the author here.
