Where's Wally?

Postby Remus » Tue Dec 04, 2012 10:36 pm

Anyone else a fan of these books? I know they are supposed to be for children but I find they really good for visual skills and the books are really beautifully detailed and I love anything challenging/puzzling. It does get annoying though when you can't find that one item you are looking for, usually the key for me.

There are good books; sometimes I would of spend pretty much all day trying to find everything.

I went to a model village a few weeks ago and placed randomly around the place were 'Where's Wally' characters-pleased to say I did find Wally and the others

Because by changing the name they show that they have their own language
Like colour into color
ground floor into first floor
etc etc etc

I believe it was to cater for the audiences as well as a copyright issue with the names between the publishers.
