    I normally don't partake in reviewing comics or books that I've read as a child. They belong to my childhood, and any grown-up associations I'd make with them would possibly ruin the whole thing. I'd also rate all of them five stars just out of sheer nostalgia, making it an utterly useless contribution to the Goodreads community. "Let's add all those Tintins to our to-read piles because Mr. Nostalgia over here got all excited", said no-one ever. Not even ironically, you guys are way too nice for I normally don't partake in reviewing comics or books that I've read as a child.

I'd also rate all of them five stars just out of sheer nostalgia, making it an utterly useless contribution to the Goodreads community. "Let's add all those Tintins to our to-read piles because Mr. Nostalgia over here got all excited", said no-one ever. Not even ironically, you guys are way too nice for that. But I do want to make one exception here for my dear friend Waldo (who as a child I knew better as Wally, but really, they're the same guy). Where's Waldo? holds a place in my heart special enough to make me want to expound on the five stars brightly shining on his warm, woolen hat. For a lack of brothers and sisters to play with and there being no children in the neighborhood I grew up in, I was left to my own devices when it came to spending my time during holidays. This ranged from having imaginary sword fights, getting three or four different puzzles and mixing all the pieces in a box and trying to solve them, playing Game of the Goose against my three other selves, playing soccer games in the garden, first against my dog, who got too good at the game after a while and got prone to confiscating the ball for his own little games, so later I just dribbled the ball between the trees and fallen leaves who were really Brazilian star players in my head. Aside from all these slightly psychotic activities, there were comics and this guy over here, Waldo. Hours and hours I have spent gazing at the vast and detailed pictures that Martin Handford crafted. Weeks, no, months I have spent in his worlds. At first, it was just a point of finding Waldo and getting to the next page. Then, it became finding his friends, books, kitchenware, scrolls, cameras, bones and dog tails as well. And then, it became finding all those extra assignments handed out in the back of the book. And then, at the point where I knew all the objects' and persons' locations by heart, it became simply a matter of "reading" these books. There's very little text, but each flip of the page shows you an entire world of little stories. To get an idea of how this can be done (rather dramatically) check out this video, with Werner Herzog (or someone sounding like him, the jury is still out on that) sharing his philosophical meanderings. Mine weren't as deep as those by dear Werner, but they made days fly by nonetheless. It's been a long time since I've revisited these pages but I bet I'd still remember where most of the stuff is to be found. I know the environments in these books better than I know some places I actually visited. Having spent so much time with these books may even have something to do with having grown up looking like the guy. They definitely could be responsible for my bad eyesight: these pictures held such a power over me they practically seeped the vision out of my eyes. Well-lit places are recommended when enjoying these. Waldo has taken me many places: through time, through books, through fantasy worlds of monsters and witches and living fruit and giant bakeries and movie sets and at the end of every book, the supremely challenging Waldo worlds where everyone and everything is wearing the jeans and stripes proudly. It taught me about myself too. When getting exasperated on not finding him, I skipped to the next page anyway, in essence cheating! The bad feeling I got as a result showed me I was a good person. That's right! I am. Even though I loved the entire series, I picked Where is Waldo in Hollywood to review because it was my favorite. It introduced all the extra stuff, like finding little objects and spotting random characters from each scene, following Waldo through the pages. I got my hands on this one at a time I could appreciate the humor in many of the drawings. It's also the time where Martin Handford perfected his style, being able to introduce even more detail in all of the pictures and make the crowds, busy with hundreds of tiny activities, even more impressive. The main source of humor is puns, references to popular culture and slapstick. The puns and references mostly went over my head in early stages, mostly because most of them are English puns and idioms translated into pictures taking them literally, and discovering them later on as my English improved was a true joy. A joy I'd recommend to all of you, and your kids. These books are kind of everything: a game, stories, history lessons, jokes, art. A pleasure for the young and the used to be young. This isn't just some 5 star nostalgia review. Get these. Now. Or I'll find you. I've had plenty of practice.

    Of all the "Where's Waldo" books, I found this one to be the most challenging and difficult to find Waldo, which made it that much more enjoyable. Of all the "Where's Waldo" books, I found this one to be the most challenging and difficult to find Waldo, which made it that much more enjoyable.

    We sail, in this life, on a barge of the dead, further, then closer, swaying in time as we near that undiscovered country. We walk, in this life, in a field of corn, our hands outstretched, legs dancing, drenched by sunlight but searching somehow still. We fly, in this life, over fields like postage stamps, homes and lives we will never know, entire worlds we miss, zeitgeists for whom we will never be a part.

We muse, in this life, on so much of insignificance, even involuntarily our thoughts return to the gates of ivory. We sing, in this life, songs of hope and woe, sending them up to gods above, gods we have long forgotten, who cling to our vestigial memories like our fear of the darkness and craving for the light. We search, in this life, for Wally, through silents and talkies, fictitious wars, celluloid bloodsports, the manufactured reality of the film set, like promises written upon water, until at last we find him, never knowing if we can trust his unerring gaze, but sure in our hearts that we have staved off our fears... for the moment at least.

    This is evidence that Waldo started the Celebrity photobombing craze. This guy has used his Cold War spy skills to sneak onto sets of in-progress Hollywood films. Greatest. Spy. Ever. ...except for the fact that I found him like... right away.

    Like all the Waldo books: a work of squinty, diversionary, haphazard genius. The absurdities of Tinseltown are easy pickings for Handford's eagle-eyed wit.

    The art as well as the amount of things to search for really gets cranked up a notch in this one earning it a superior star-system rating over its predecessors.

    One of the better Waldo books. You know how it was annoying when you would have trick Waldo's where it was almost Waldo? This one doesn't resort to those kinds of tricks. It's just Waldo, hanging out in movie sets. And there is only one person who really even looks like Waldo. My niece loves these books. So it will be fun to hand her another one.

    This is Waldo's peak. Every scene jammed to the brim with characters, sometimes literally covering each other (and in Waldo's case, all but his sock!). This book finally address the fact that finding Waldo is not the most enjoyable feature on display by adding friends and a dog for readers to track down. All in all, another great Waldo book.

    I loved these books whenever I was in Elementary school. It kept me busy and made me use my noggin. So if you're trying to work and your kids on getting on your nerves, plop them on the couch with one of these. =D I loved these books whenever I was in Elementary school.

    Nothing could ever top the original for its sheer brilliance and twisty narrative structure, but this was a nice improvement over the third book in the series.
