About the Author

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.

I bought this for my 5 year old daughter to take out and about with her rather then take the huge individual books - it has been very well received, both by her and my husband who appears to have become a Wally addict! I do agree that some of the illustrations are a bit on the small side but it is just as enjoyable regardless! Recommend this for Wally followers everywhere!

Where's Wally is a brilliant concept - very detailed pictures with lots of things to find. This compilation is excellent for a plane journey, and it can be shared between a child and adult or two children to make it less isolated and more fun. I caught my husband trying to find Wally the other day, and much to my amusement and his frustration, he couldn't! My only complaint with the book is that as it is so compact, the characters are really small indeed, and for some of the more intricate things to find, the defining detail is not always clear. But it is a travel version, so I guess it would cease to be such if they made it bigger!

Ideal size for children when travelling on long car journeys, passing the time on a rainy day or summer holidays. Parcel arrived on time and well packaged.

I purchased this where's walls the totally essential travel collection book. I like it comes with the elastic to pull around and close the front. Its sort of the average height of a standard paperback novel, but a little wider. Very typical Sally. You also need to find woof, wends, wizard white beard and odlaw. In some he's so easy to find and others seem impossible - there's one with two pages full of wallys and the instructions tell you the real wally is missing his shoe - find Wally and the odd shoe! Oh that was painful! I like that some pages are simpler and not as much in your face detail as it gives the younger ones the chance to find Wally. Sally is one of those things that I did as a kid and now I'm really enjoying getting my son into. Great fun, whatever age you are. Great selection in this book, great variety. Some pages flip out (details the same but just the page flipping out). I'd recommend for anyone looking for a collection of where's wally "puzzles".

You need to have good eyesight for this travel edition, but if you do, this is a great miniature version of all the Where's Wally publications. Perfect to fit in your carry-on or rucksack, and can while away many an otherwise boring hour. Recommended.

I love the miniature version, I love the fact all are in one book, and I love Where's Wally? . This is one where you cannot cheat and look up the answer (except maybe youtube). This contains most of the books: Where's Wally?, Where's Wally Now? Where's Wally 3: The fantastic journey? Where's Wally Hollywood, Where's Wally the Wonder Book. Plus you can get absorbed as much or as little you like- find everything or just a little bit. You do improve your observational skills, and its a very good educational and a good way to entertain on a long journey/ afternoon.

As an avid fan of Where's Wally from childhood, I have tried my best to introduce my son to this. He has a couple of the big books, and has always liked them, but when I saw this for a bargin price, which included ALL the books in one it was a must buy for christmas.
I have bought a magnifine glass for help in finding the chcaracters, as they do appear rather small, as it is on a small scale, but you could find them all fine without, but he is only 5, and thought i shpould aid him somewhat!

Format: Paperback
I love this book, it contains all 7 classic Where's Wally adventures. Probably not suitable for younger children as it has fold out pages that could get torn. As the original books are a lot bigger than this version, some of the items can be a little hard to find and it may be a good idea to also purchase a small magnifying glass. I can't see this being a problem as it will add to the fun with children. There are extra lists of hundreds of items to find that even if you do manage to complete the whole book you could go back to the begining to start again and not remember where anything is. I would definitely recommend this item as it will keep children entertained for hours.
