About The Author

Martin Handford 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. From this the character Wally was born -- originally to provide a link between each scene. The "Where's Wally?" books have gone on to become a global success. Each Wally picture takes Martin at least eight weeks to draw.

    Comments about Where's Wally Now?:

    Bought as a present for my 6 year old daughter.
    She loved the challenge of finding not only Wally but all the extra things listed to search for.
    Kept her focussed and determined for days.
    Thought it was a great buy and activity for cold and wet days or when kids are a bit sick with winter colds.

      This classic activity book never ceases to bore - every time you look there's even more! * Junior Education * Addictive and highly entertaining, Where's Wally contains pages of busy scenes with the uniquely dressed Wally hidden in each one. Spending time with your child as you try to find the elusive Wally is a great way to develop observation skills, memory and concentration. * Maternity & Infant * This book is fun for anyone of any age. The classic "hunt the hidden character" illustrated books are excellent for engaging children. * Brighton Argus/Newbury Weekly News * Where's Wally? has been around, well forever, and he is still as popular today as he ever was. This is a pocket-sized version of the first book with a magnifying glass to help you find Wally, his friends and all the other items he's lost during his journey. Great for sitting around airports/on planes when size really matters. * Essex Chronicle * Where's Wally? has been a hit since it was first published, and the great news is that these books are now available in min-editions with a free magnifying glass! Where's Wally Now? will keep children (and adults) amused for hours as they try to find Wally, his friends, and other objects, and this mini-edition really is pocket-sized! * Essex Chronicle *

      Martin Handford

      Martin Handford spent much of his childhood drawing and his earliest influences were cinema epics and playing with toy soldiers. At art college he continued to draw what he calls "busy and militarily correct battle scenes" which led to his job as a freelance illustrator specialising in drawing crowd scenes for numerous clients. Martin now gathers his inspiration from a huge variety of sources; films, visiting museums and art galleries, reading comics and books, and collecting ephemera and trivia. He is fascinated by crowds, and is attracted to their vibes, patterns and details - especially humour; "I love their movement and energy." He is also constantly on the look out for puns and wordplay that can be used in his pictures. Gradually, from all this meticulous research, the inspiration for a picture emerges, which Martin embellishes with his own ideas to create astonishing scenes. Each picture takes Martin months to draw. "As I work my way through a picture, I add Wally when I come to what I feel is a good place to hide him," he explains.
