Review:  Join Wally and his friends as they journey across ancient lands, caves and castles in this great book that’s more than just a standard Where’s Wally? book, but an activity book too! This book is around A4 in size and quite thick but packs a lot of great activities into it’s pages which kids and even adults will enjoy.

The book begins by introducing all the regular Wally cast and telling you the various things that need to be found throughout the pages. Each page in the book has different activities from actual games to play, writing in ancient Egyptian, word puzzles, to drawing your own Egypt using shapes, to name just a few activities. Although some of the puzzles in this book are too simple for adults, all ages can enjoy the searching aspect of this book and as usual there are a lot of detailed and funny scenes with Wally and friends and their belongings hiding in the pages. Individual pages also often have additional things to find too which makes this book even more fun.

The back of the book contains some solutions to the puzzles as well as a whole page of Where’s Wally stickers! The stickers can be stuck anywhere, in the book or anywhere you like and all feature familiar, funny characters all with the ‘across lands’ theme. There’s even a giant sticker of Wally in the centre of this sticker page.

Overall this is a great activity book that can be enjoyed even after all the puzzles are completed. With plenty of searching to do it’s also a fun activity book for adults to look at. You don’t get many pages but at the price and with the fun searching aspect (which still takes a lot of time to do) this books is well worth the price. 🙂
