Waldo Arrives in Mendocino!

Where's Waldo? In Mendocino, of course. The famous fellow in the striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting more than twenty different Mendocino businesses all through the month of July. Those who spot him can win prizes, including buttons, books, and more.

Anyone who wishes to participate can pick up a “Find Waldo in Mendocino!” search list with the names of all the businesses at Gallery Bookshop beginning Sunday, July 1st, and collect a merchant signature for each Waldo they spot. Collecting signatures in sixteen or more businesses and turning them in at Gallery Bookshop & Bookwinkle’s Children’s Books will win a Waldo button and an entry for other, larger prizes to be drawn at a Waldo party at the end of July.

Waldo's publisher, Candlewick Press, is teaming up with 250 independent bookstores all across the country, including Gallery Bookshop & Bookwinkle’s Children’s Books here in Mendocino, to have fun and encourage people to visit local businesses. There is no charge to participate, and kids of all ages are welcome.

For more information about hunting for Waldo in Mendocino, call Gallery Bookshop at (707) 937-2665.
