Just when you thought you'd mastered the art of finding Wally, along comes a whole new twist. Can you find Wally in the dark?

It's Wally like you've never seen him before! Use the paper spotlight searcher as a magic torch to illuminate the six classic scenes. The trick is to carefully move the magic slider around until the right spot is revealed. Each spectacular scene contains Wally and his friends, along with bonus hidden content and additional games on every page. The ultimate search-and-find book, with a night-time twist!

All light-up magic is designed from paper, and extra spotlight searchers are available to print from online. No batteries necessary.

The Where's Wally? series has sold over 71.5 million books worldwide.

My daughter loved this book. She will sit for hours doing them normal one so when this arrived she couldn't wait to try it. This is where's wally with a difference as its in the dark. You get a stick which you use as a search light to help you find the characters in the dark. This book is very cleverly done and my daughters had hours of fun with it.

What a great book, really good quality too. This is such a fun take on where's Wally, where you get a special spotlight finder. Which as you slide it under the page it lights up, so as you move your slider different parts of the scene light up. My little boy really enjoyed this and thought it was lots of fun. As always there's plenty to see and find for hours of entertainment.

Just when you think you are an expert wally-watcher, the Spectacular Spotlight Search comes along! The book comes with a durable cardboard spotlight searcher that slides into the side of each page to illuminate the scene as you move it around. There are six different scenes where you can have fun finding Wally, Woof('s Tail), Wenda, Wizard Whitebeard, Odlaw, Wally's Key, Woof's Bone, Wenda's Camera, Wizard Whitebeard's Scroll and Odlaw's Binoculars. There's also a character carrying a torch to find. In addition to that, there are different challenges and extra things to find on each page. Leo has been so excited using the searcher to complete each of the scenes - it's a brilliant book for Where's Wally fans and those new to the series alike. We have already downloaded a couple of extra spotlight searchers (available from the url on the first page), ready to get other family members involved!

A great twist on the traditional Where’s Wally books. 
The spotlight made it a really fun book, there was lots to find, all the usual characters and then some extra bits. The pictures were interesting and the book would make a great gift

What a fun book! We have a couple of the Where's Wally books but this takes it to a new level. The book includes a magic wand, and when you place it in the pages, it lights up a part of the scene so you can try and find Wally. You can choose a circle shape to look through, or a star. There are several different scenes, some are harder than others (we haven't managed to find Wally in all of them yet). This would be a really fun Christmas present and will definitely keep children occupied. It's really nice to see a Wally book doing something a bit different.

Ruby wants to give this book 10/10 
Her first where is wally book.
She was overwhelmed and so happy when it arrived.
The magic slider was fantastic and she sat happily searching for wally. She loves how it likes up the book.
I love the illustrations and the introduction and writer bits were fun for her to read and work out the words. It’s was so ultra cool she had taken it to show and tell and couldn’t wait to show her class and explain how the torch works. Brilliant

This is a really fun Where's Wally search in the dark book. You use the spotlight searcher included at the front of the book to help you see in the dark. Then you have to find Wally and lots of other characters. The pictures in the book are amazing with lots of detail. There are also more fun things to do on each double page. There's a maze and lots of other tasks to complete. I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to look for Wally and his friends on every page.

A fantastic twist on the traditional Where’s Wally books. My Year 4 class loved this book as a treat to read in their free time. The spotlight magic wand was an engaging and exciting part addition to the book, it was also durable too and has survived many different children in the class using it. The children loved challenging themselves to use the different ends of the wand. A really fun book and great all round, plenty of challenges to engage those children who have many Where's Wally books at home too!

A new take on where’s wally - received as a Toppsta giveaway . 
I really enjoyed finding wally and the spotlight made it fun although a bit mor difficult to find everything 
My only criticism is that some of the descriptions are a bit vague  e.g a shy fish ? and some of the objects a bit small
