Where's Waldo? The Totally Essential Travel Collection - Review and Giveaway

I received product for review from Candlewick Press.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

Book Overview:

Waldo fans setting off on their own travels will clamor for this compact collection of seven adventures, now adorned with a foil cover and offering six postcards to color. Featured are Where’s Waldo?; Where’s Waldo Now?; Where’s Waldo? The Fantastic Journey; Where’s Waldo? The Wonder Book; Where’s Waldo? In Hollywood; Where’s Waldo? The Great Picture Hunt!; and Where’s Waldo? The Incredible Paper Chase. Includes flaps and a handy elastic clasp.

My Review:

If, by chance, you're not familiar with Waldo he is a male character who travels the world and blends in with crowds.  His trademark outfit includes blue pants, a red and white striped shirt and stocking hat, and glasses.  In the Where's Waldo? books, it's up to you to pick Waldo out from a crowded scene.  If you are familiar with Waldo, then you already know that it's not easy to spot Waldo among the backdrop.

Take your visual senses on a journey with Where's Waldo? The Totally Essential Travel Collection.  This book showcases Waldo on several adventures.  Not only is it up to you to find Waldo, it's also up to you to find many other objects within the settings.  A fold-out flap is at the left of every adventure so you can see what exactly what it is you need to find.  For instance, you may be asked to search for a dog bone, a certain book, or a particular animal.  You can check off the box beside each item you find.  

This book will keep you busy for hours, and it definitely makes you use your noggin.  Because the book is smaller, the figures and pictures are on a more stunted scale.  It makes looking for specifics  more of a challenge.  There are six black and white postcards included.  They are intricate in detail, and you can color them.  Send the postcards off to your friends and have them search for Waldo and other items themselves.

Win It!

One person will win Where's Waldo? The Totally Essential Travel Collection.

By the way, I was actually one of more than 4,000 people who set a Guinness World Record for the most Waldos in one place! He's actually called 'Wally' in Ireland, where the event took place. BEST FUN EVER!!

You can see some of the fun pics here. I'm in the front row, over on the left. The one in red and white stripes. ;)
