About Waldo and Wenda

Waldo is the protagonist of a puzzle book series for kids released for the first time in 1987 under the title "Where's Wally?" or "Where's Waldo" for audiences in the United States and Canada. He was originally conceived to be the center piece of a collection of two-paged landscapes that would take up to eight weeks for artist Martin Handford to draw by hand.

The objective is to find Waldo in painstakingly detailed pictures populated with all sorts of characters misleadingly resemblant to Waldo to trick the reader. At some point, other characters were added to the search, like Welma, Waldo's girlfriend and the one responsible for taking the pictures of the landscapes where Waldo is hiding. She was first introduced in "The Magnificent Poster Book" (1991) and became a recurrent character ever since.
