Where's Waldo: Reissue Apr 15, 2008
My grandchildren 3 - 6 thoroughly enjoy this book. The original copy which was owned by my son-in-law as a child was destroyed from so much use, so this was a repurchase. They all love finding Waldo and looking at the various tiny characters on each page.
Where's Waldo Feb 1, 2006
Always a great book - baught the original when my children were young for road trips - I baught this reissue for my 22yr old son to take to Iraq the original was worn out. Had to sneak a peak thou and all five of us spent hours together like we did so many years ago.
Entertaining Feb 27, 2004
This is a very fun book. I enjoyed the Waldo books when I was a preteen. The pictures teaming with people from every walks of life with lots of little stories in the greater scene.
Now my kids are old enough to begin looking for Waldo. My four year old son is very entertained by looking for Waldo. He has spent hours looking at this book.
This book you have to find the dog's tail, waldo, the thing he lost, and several Waldo watchers. It's fairly hard and yet my son still loves it.

My 3-year old's favorite. Jun 23, 1999
Entertaining for both children and adults. This book is full of visual puns and amusing drawings like a flying Ace (of spades) and a human snowball. Long after we've found Waldo everywhere, we're still seeing something new and surprising. This is a great (but slightly bulky) book to keep kids entertained on long trips.
