In this wordless picture book, the zookeeper lounges idly while all the animals nap in their pens. All except one, that is. Sensing his opportunity, the wily walrus makes a break for it and eludes the zookeeper by hiding, like Waldo, among a group of similar-looking people or objects. He "hides" in a fountain, impersonates a mannequin, and joins a chorus line, to name a few. Finally, the zookeeper pursues the walrus to a diving competition where the walrus wins first place. This gives the zookeeper an idea.
The walrus is, of course, a lot easier to find than Waldo, but young children will still have a zany time picking him out from his improbable disguises. Because the book is wordless, even the youngest children will be able to "read" it themselves. My daughter's favorite part is where the walrus winks at us at the beginning. 4.5 stars.
