Walker Books, 2017. ISBN 9781406376241
(Ages: 5-12) Recommended. Picture Puzzles. This special edition celebrating 30 years of Where's Wally? revisits twelve classic scenes from Wally's past adventures, each one slightly altered and with more searches and games than before. On each page Wally recounts his past adventure and sets a challenge for the pictured scene, in addition to finding Wally, the four other characters and five lost items. In addition, there are numerous other challenges for more advanced searchers and puzzlers.
There is a very good reason why Where's Wally has been so successful over the last 30 years and probably will be into the future. The illustrations, even though they come from previous publications, do not look out-dated, proving the timelessness of the format. The crazy, busy scenes encourage hours of puzzling fun and will be enjoyed by new Wally readers as well as those dedicated fans who have seen each of these scenes before.
