If your childhood was anything like mine, you relished getting a new Where's Waldo book from the library! I loved cracking the cover and doing a leisurely search through all the folderol, until finally: Waldo! But I still wouldn’t turn the page until I had looked through all the quirky and often hilarious vignettes. Plus you could explain the vast amounts of time you spent with the books, "But Mom, this is practically a history book, these lions are eating Romans in the Colosseum."
I have to admit I still look at these books now and again. I even get a rush when I'm at events with thousands of people like Comic Con and I find someone dressed up as Waldo. I tell myself, "Found him!" and do an internal happy dance.
Teens, if you want to re-live the thrill of the hunt for Waldo, come to the library next week! We'll have him hidden in various spots in the library, and if you find all of them you can win a prize for being such a smartie! Come to the First Floor Reference desk anytime between Monday the 25th and Saturday the 30th to get started.
