In this adventure journey Wally is taken to the glittering sets of Tinseltown. The reader is invited to follow Wally through a cast of thousands, across the crowded sets of classic movies. He is to be searched for in the chorus line of that Busby Berkeley musical, up on the ramparts of a Foreign Legion epic, on the back of the Trojan Horse and in the middle of the swashbuckling exploits of Robin Hood and the Three Musketeers? Wally and Wenda, Woof, Wizard Whitebeard and Odlaw are harder than ever to find! Martin Handford was runner-up for the 1988 Mother Goose Award for his first book "Where's Wally? and has since illustrated "Where's Wally Now?" "Where's Wally? 3 The Fantastic Journey", "Where's Wally? The Ultimate Fun Book", 'Where's Wally? The Magnificent Poster Book", "Where's Wally? the Fabulous Flying Carpets Sticker book!" and "Where's Wally? The Dazzling Deep-sea Divers Sticker Book!".

Martin Handford, the man behind the mind-boggling Waldo books, began his career as a freelance illustrator specializing in drawing crowd scenes. "I can’t tell you how pleased I am that Waldo has taken on a life of his own," he 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.From Publishers Weekly:
He's back--and as enticingly elusive as ever. Here the bespectacled wanderer travels to Tinseltown to hide out on 12 actor- and crew-packed movie sets. Among the epic productions he witnesses are a reenactment of a battle between the Trojans and the Greeks; the tale of Ali Baba and the 40-plus thieves; the adventures of the (many more than three) musketeers; and a grand skirmish between Robin Hood's myriad merry men and the soldiers of Nottingham Castle. In addition to Waldo (who is usually visible only from the neck up), Wenda, Wizard Whitebeard, bad-guy Odlaw and Woof ("Remember, all you can see is his tail!") are also artfully camouflaged on each riotous spread--as are a minuscule scroll, bone, key and can of film. Handford outdoes himself in the oversize volume's final scene, depicting the filming of "Where's Waldo? The Musical," which entails a stageful of one genuine--and countless impostors of--Waldo and each of his colleagues. Filled with witty puns and plays on Hollywood cliches, Handford's trademark checklists of "lots more things for Waldo-watchers to look for" conclude this clever book. Allegedly three years in the making, this production was worth waiting for. Ages 5-up.
