Review new 2021

We love Where’s Wally? books in our house and own numerous of them. We also have a few of the travel sized versions for when we go away on holiday or day trips, to keep the kids occupied.

In this latest edition, Exciting Expeditions, kids will have plenty of things to find and puzzles to solve. From writing stories to working their way through the mazes and filling in the wordsearches, there is something different on each page to keep them amused.

The only notable difference with this book is how much space there is for writing. If you have a child that enjoys writing, including making up their own stories, as well as working out puzzles then this is the book for them. If you have a child that isn’t a writer, maybe choose a different Where’s Wally? book for them to enjoy.

The A5 book is small enough to put in your backpack or handbag and will give a child hours of enjoyment. Just make sure they pack a pen or pencil too. There is also a game at the pack that they can pop out and play with.

Another wonderful Where’s Wally? Book to add to an ever increasing collection of Where’s Wally? books. Plenty of fun colourful scenes and enjoyment to be had within the pages.

About the Author

Martin Handford, the man behind the mind-boggling Where’s Wally books, began his career as a freelance illustrator specialising in drawing crowd scenes. The turning point came when he was asked to create a book showcasing his impressive talent, and the character Wally was born — originally to provide a link between each scene.

“I can’t tell you how pleased I am that Wally has taken on a life of his own,” Martin Handford says. “I’d like to inspire children to open their minds to explore subjects more, to be aware of what’s going on around them. I’d like them to see wonder in places that may not have occurred to them.” Martin Handford lives in England.
