William Walter Waldo was born on March 10, 1955. He grew up in Barstow, CA before moving to Santa Rosa, CA where he currently resides. He married his high school sweetheart Linda in 1978 and they had two children. Their oldest daughter Amy graduated from Sonoma State University with a degree in Mathematics and resides in Northern California.
“Where’s Waldo?” is a picture puzzle book in which you try to find Waldo (also called Wally), a red-and-white-striped shirt-wearing man. He is hidden among a crowd of people, animals and other objects. The series was created by English illustrator Martin Handford.
“Where’s Waldo?” started as a single picture book, but has now expanded into 12 books and an app. In the most recent book, “The Incredible Paper Chase,” it’s not just Waldo you’re looking for. The game also involves finding his friends, Wenda and Wizard Whitebeard, and Woof the dog. You might also see Odlaw, who wants to stop Waldo from being found.
Besides the United States and Canada, “Where’s Waldo?” is published in more than 35 countries. Martin Handford has been to many of these places to sign books. He has even gone on tour with the World Association of Marching Showbands!

Where’s Waldo Flower Garden is an entertaining book for any age. It is a puzzle book which contains double page spreads of a busy flower garden. The reader’s goal is to find Waldo and his friends, Wenda and Wizard Whitebeard, who are hiding in the garden along with several other characters. There are clues to help identify each character, but it can be very difficult to find them all. The challenge of finding Waldo and his friends makes this book not only fun to read, but also fun to look at.
The book is quite large (just over a foot tall) and has bright, colorful pictures on every page. Most of the pictures are full-page drawings, but some are photographs with Waldo and his friends hidden in them. The pictures are very detailed with lots of things going on in each scene which adds to the challenge of finding the hidden characters.
