This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Where’s Waldo? books. Martin Handford’s collections of crowd scenes swept the world in the late eighties, and since then have held a cherished spot on bookstore shelves the world over. There are now over 67 million Waldo books in print worldwide, and they’ve been translated into over thirty languages. An entire generation has grown up searching for Waldo and his cast of wandering companions.
To celebrate such a special milestone, Waldo’s friend Wenda will also be hiding in Plot Twist Bookstore here in Ankeny! Participants of Find Waldo Local will have double the fun searching for both Waldo and Wenda all month long.
Everyone is invited to the Find Waldo in Ankeny Party on Monday, July 31 at 11 a.m. at Plot Twist Bookstore. Be sure to look for Waldo at these awesome local businesses!
Be sure to watch for Where’s Waldo? paper and die cuts coming to Memory Bound!
