Where's Waldo?

Postby Wrecks » Mon Mar 21, 2011 5:36 pm

I think this would classify as a children's book. But who all here remembers this book?

I remember Where's Wally, yes. I think Waldo is the Americanised version.

Read it? How can you read it? There's no text! :shock: It's only pictures and you've got to find Wally, several look-a-like Wallies and a wizard with a staff. :?

I actually did a whole Wally book at a kids' space when my kids were playing 3 weeks ago. When I say "did" I mean I found all the Wallies and all the wizards. I didn't faff about with the look-a-like wallies. :D

I have no idea why that particular Wiki link wouldn't work. I tried it three times. In the end I used another Wiki link to the page about the British creator of Wally. :roll:
