Back in the late 80’s, a series of books were published in which kids scoured the pages searching for a crudely dressed dude named Waldo. Waldo chose to wear red and white striped shirts, and tried to hide in a crowd. I remember my sister staring at the pages until her eyes crossed. Great fun.
Kids today need more stimulation in order to peak their interest. To deal with this, the writers of the Where’s Waldo series have upped the ante. They still feature the Waldo character, but this time, he is dressed more conservatively, and hidden in actual photos.
