Where's Waldo????

Where's Waldo? In Indianapolis, of course! He's turning twenty-six this year, and to celebrate, the famous fellow in the striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting 8 different local businesses at 56th and Illinois Street from July 17-31. Those who spot him can win prizes, including books and Kids Ink Children’s Bookstore gift certificates.  From Chase Bank to the Illinois Street Food Emporium  Waldo figures will be showing up in public areas of local establishments. Anyone who wishes to participate can come to Kids Ink Children’s Bookstore, 5619 N. Illinois Street, to pick up a free search list with the names of all the businesses and then go collect an "I Found Waldo at ___________" card for each Waldo they spot. Searchers can then turn in these cards to Kids Ink and enter to win prizes in the drawing  July 31, 2013.  

Waldo is the creation of Martin Handford, whose entertaining drawings of crowd scenes swept the world in 1987. Since then, the Where’s Waldo books have held a cherished spot on bookstore shelves the world over. There are now over 55 million Waldo books in print worldwide and they’ve been translated into eighteen languages. An entire generation has grown up searching for Waldo and his cast of wandering companions.

Kids Ink is one of 250 independent bookstores all across the country that have teamed up with the American Booksellers Association and Candlewick Press to celebrate Waldo’s 26th anniversary. For more information on this free, fun hunt to find Waldo and visit local businesses, call Kids Ink at 317-255-2598.
