Find Waldo Local!

waldoOur annual Find Waldo search continues in 2017! Waldo, of the Where's Waldo? books, is hiding in 23 Norwich businesses and shops. We need you to find him and his friend Wenda!

To play, pick up a passport at the Norwich Bookstore. Inside your passport is a list of the participating businesses (and their addresses). When you find Waldo at one of the establishments, get your passport stamped or signed by an employee. Once you've found Waldo in half the locations, you can turn your passport in to the Norwich Bookstore and receive a Waldo button and $1 off coupon good toward a Waldo book. Or, keep your passport and find him at all the listed stores to be entered to win one of several majorly cool Waldo-themed grand prizes including a six-volume deluxe set of Waldo books!

This year marks the thirtieth anniversary of the Where’s Waldo? books. Martin Handford’s collections of crowd scenes swept the world in the late eighties, and since then have held a cherished spot on bookstore shelves the world over. There are now over 67 million Waldo books in print worldwide, and they’ve been translated into over thirty languages. An entire generation has grown up searching for Waldo and his cast of wandering companions. To celebrate such a special milestone, Waldo’s friend Wenda will also be hiding in Norwich Bookstore.
