Find the elusive Waldo in Poulsbo

POULSBO — Where’s Waldo? In Poulsbo, of course.

The famous children’s book character in the striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting 25 businesses in downtown Poulsbo through July. Those who spot him can win prizes, including stickers, book coupons and more.

Anyone who wishes to participate can pick up a “Find Waldo” passport at Liberty Bay Books, 18881 Front St. The first 100 Waldo-seekers to get their passports stamped or signed at 20 or more sites can bring their passports back to Liberty Bay Books to be invited to the free Waldo celebration on July 31, with a grand prize drawing of a six-volume deluxe set of Waldo books.

“Where’s Waldo” is the creation of Martin Handford, whose entertaining drawings of crowd scenes swept the world in 1987. Since then, “Where’s Waldo” books have held a cherished spot on bookstore shelves the world over. There are now more than 58 million Waldo books in print worldwide and they’ve been translated into 18 languages.
