WHERE’S WALDO? DOUBLE TROUBLE AT THE MUSEUM, by Martin Handford, Candlewick Press


Maybe you’re good at spotting Waldo. But can you spot the difference? Head to the museum, where even the sharpest eyes are seeing double.

Waldo is wandering through the museum, where there are some devilishly difficult differences to decipher. Finding Waldo and his buddies is hard enough, but who can spot the minutiae that separate one Egyptian tablet from another? The dastardly details that make two maritime scenes unalike? The itty-bitty discrepancies between the vintage books and scrolls? With more than five hundred differences to be delineated, this brand-new spin on the art of spotting Waldo will have fans of all ages lining up to take a look.

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

It’s hard to believe that this book actually (based on page count) belongs in the picture book category.  I hate to admit this, but I found the search and find pages very hard at times, or maybe I’m just visually challenged. Whatever the case, this book is certainly not meant for tots. I would recommend for the very young to have mom or dad along to help out, or risk frustration and turn-off of reading.

I loved looking for Waldo. I look forward to any new books put out and find each one surprisingly different from the other. You will never truly know what to expect with each, but I promise you will have hours of fun, either shared or on your own.

I also liked the fact that Handford gave you plenty to look for in this book, keeping the reader extra busy and engaged. His art style is unique and Waldo is ever present in his familiar duds–red and white t-shirt and blue pants. Don’t forget his glasses and hat!

Even parents are getting into the books. There are over 500 differences to spot! Can you find them all?
