Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

He's back--and as enticingly elusive as ever. Here the bespectacled wanderer travels to Tinseltown to hide out on 12 actor- and crew-packed movie sets. Among the epic productions he witnesses are a reenactment of a battle between the Trojans and the Greeks; the tale of Ali Baba and the 40-plus thieves; the adventures of the (many more than three) musketeers; and a grand skirmish between Robin Hood's myriad merry men and the soldiers of Nottingham Castle. In addition to Waldo (who is usually visible only from the neck up), Wenda, Wizard Whitebeard, bad-guy Odlaw and Woof ("Remember, all you can see is his tail!") are also artfully camouflaged on each riotous spread--as are a minuscule scroll, bone, key and can of film. Handford outdoes himself in the oversize volume's final scene, depicting the filming of "Where's Waldo? The Musical," which entails a stageful of one genuine--and countless impostors of--Waldo and each of his colleagues. Filled with witty puns and plays on Hollywood cliches, Handford's trademark checklists of "lots more things for Waldo-watchers to look for" conclude this clever book. Allegedly three years in the making, this production was worth waiting for. Ages 5-up.

From School Library Journal

K Up-Waldo travels to movie sets in this latest adventure, and each one (e.g., The Wild, Wild West and Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves) is cleverly illustrated-the silent movie is in black and white, but the stagehands and areas not being filmed appear in color. For the Nottingham Castle scene in Robin Hood's Merry Mess-Up, there are enough striped shirts and tents and banners to make readers dizzy. And the Where's Waldo-the Musical set will result in astigmatism for anyone looking for longer than a minute. Guaranteed to please Waldo's fans and a clever production all around.

I very much enjoyed this edition of "Where's Waldo." The pictures are extremely pleasing and innovative. I particularly enjoyed the last page. What is on the last page? You have to buy it to find out. ::wink::

1.0 out of 5 stars Smallest book ever published Oct. 17 2007
By C. Mac
Format:Hardcover
I returned this item because it was too small to make reading enjoyable. The inside cover actually includes a magnifying lens so you can see the images.
This product did not meet my expectations at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars The HARDEST Waldo book Nov. 27 2003
By Targo Tennisberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
If you have never seen a Waldo book before, here's a short overview:
"Where's Waldo" series consists of unique colorful picture books where the illustrations are filled with hundreds of tiny characters doing all kinds of funny things. Your goal as a reader is to find Waldo, a guy in red and white shirt on all those pictures. If finding Waldo gets too easy then you can try to find his companions, his friend Wendy, Wizard Whitebeard, bad guy Odlaw, and dog Woof. And after that you can spend countless hours finding miscellaneous special items unique to each picture.
Mentally, this activity is similar to assembling a 5000 piece jigsaw puzzle, only it's more fun.
Each book follows a theme, this particular one is set in Hollywood, and every picture is a movie set. There's a black and white silent movie, some history movies, a musical, a fantasy, a western, and others.
One great thing about Waldo books is that even small children can spot Waldo as well or even better than adults, it doesn't require any skills other than good eyesight and attention to details. This makes it fun to read together and compete with your kids of virtually all ages, not just 4-8 as the Amazon reading level suggests.
"Where's Waldo: In Hollywood" has some particularly hard extra puzzles, harder than any other Waldo book that I've seen. The ultimate problem is in the inside of the back cover: there's a list of 176 character faces, almost all of which appear somewhere among the thousands of figures throughout the book. But ten of them do not, and you have to find out which ten! I don't know anyone that has successfully found all of them yet. So I challenge you to find them! :)

4.0 out of 5 stars My 5 yr old's favorite book. March 31 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
My son just turned 5 and received this book as a birthday present. He sits for _hours_ looking at it. He is a very physically active child and very few things hold his attention very long, but this does

3.0 out of 5 stars Just know that it is a very small book Jan. 25 2013
By AG - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are looking for a Where's Waldo book that is very small than this is the book for you. I was hoping that it would be an 8x10 book but is is approximately half that if not smaller. You have to have very good eyesight to find anything yet alone Waldo. After I got it, I looked it up online and noticed that it said "Mini Edition." So really it is my fault for not paying attention.

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointed Jan. 17 2013
By margo lauer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This book was a big disappointment. I thought it would be bigger. It was impossible to find Waldo, even with the magnifying glass. I went out and bought the larger version at Barns & Noble.
