Find Waldo Now

Martin Handford, Author Little Brown and Company $14.95 (26p) ISBN 978-0-316-34292-6

Readers who first met wayfaring Waldo in Where's Waldo? will be delighted to have him back for another search. This time, however, Waldo is traveling through time, to be found among cavemen, Egyptian slaves or Roman gladiators. He keeps dropping books as he goes along; at the end (when Waldo reaches the future), readers are instructed to go back to find his missing items. If that weren't enough, there are checklists on the end papers of even more things to look forcrusaders soaking up the sun, five knockouts with one slingshot, etc. Handford's detailed, brightly colored illustrations are panoramically busyeach one is filled with humorous incidents. A game for many or a book for one, this is a welcome follow-up to the first of Waldo's adventures. All ages. (September)
