Where is that dude???

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.

This is my entry into Rochelle Wisoff-Fields’ Friday Fictioneers. Be sure to click on the froggy for more great stories.

  1. I still see those books in stores occasionally, but it’s a while since I’ve had the time (or inclination) to stare at a picture and look for him! Intriguing alternative proposition here, though!

  2. Hahahah! That was my initial reaction to this photo. I squinted to see if I could make out the people. Historical fiction? I think these people are wearing modern closes, but I’m not sure… All these confusing thoughts ran through my mind. The difference between you and me is that you had the good and fine sense not to ignore your playful muse! 😉

  3. I had heard that phrase, but had no idea what it was referring to. Very clever to tie the picture to the phrase.
