A crafty Wally book bursting with over 1,000 stickers. Get ready for some stupendous fun with this neat little Wally book filled to the brim with stickers ready to be stuck here, there and everywhere! The sticker sheets echo themes of the classic Wally scenes from the original books, such as The Airport and The Riddle of the Pyramids, while at the start of each new sticker section, Wally and each of his friends introduce the reader to creative ideas that they can do with the stickers: make mini crowd scenes, scribe sensational stories, and even build a board game! But the fun doesn't stop there! Wally fans will also be inspired to have their own Where's Wally? hunt with the character-based stickers that can be hidden in all manner of places, encouraging Wally-watchers to invite their own friends to join in the search! There are even "I found Wally!" stickers! How fun-tastic!
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. 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.
