Wally-watchers will find lots to entertain them in this pocket-sized puzzle-packed volume. As well as search and find challenges, there are quizzes, mazes, memory games and even the odd page of jokes all of them stamped with the unmistakeable images of Wally, his friends and his world. As an extra treat, a fold-out board game is tucked neatly into the back cover. Just the thing to give the brain a work-out over the summer or to while away a long journey. ~ Andrea Reece

Reviews

Praise for the Where's Wally series;

Obsessively irresistible. Julia Eccleshare, The Bookseller

It's not unusual for books of this type to be described as 'giving hours of fun'. Well that doesn't apply here: there are weeks or even months of fun (or torture) to be had for a relatively modest cover price. The book has a soft back (but with flaps to keep your place) so isn't really going to work as a travelling colouring book, but the paper is of good quality and I tried them with felt tip markers and there was no bleed through on the reverse of the page. The Bookbag

Subtitled The Ultimate Colouring Challenge, the book is jam packed with Where's Wally spreads - but with a difference! They are all in black-and-white. Keen and dextrous colourers will relish the challenge of creating their own pages for the book while also hunting for the elusive Wally who is even harder to find than ever with no distinctive coloured bobble hat to spot. The Guardian Online

Try your hand at the ultimate creative challenge, a Where's Wally? colouring book. Each page includes wonderful scenes that are full of fantastic detail. As you colour them in, see if you can spot Wally and his lost pencils. This is the perfect book for eagle-eyed colouring champions. The Week Junior

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.
