[ID:Fabulous Fairy Tale Follies] "Where's Waldo"-type fairy tale book
« on: Wednesday 19 October 2011, 12:05 am »
This would be in the mid- to late nineties. It was a "hidden picture" book along the lines of "Where's Waldo".

The story was that it was a theater that only put on fairy tale plays. Every picture showed the theater's stage with the proscenium arch and a big staircase on either side, and a huge amount of people dressed as fairy tale characters. The director had a list of the characteristics he wanted for each character--so, for example, Snow White had to have waist-length black hair, a short blue dress, a rounded collar, ect. ect. and you would have to find the one Snow White in the crowd that matched the description.

I also remember there was a running gag where the janitor kept trying to get into the plays and he would always do a really bad job at dressing up.

Don't have a clue but it sounds like something I'd like.

......

Think I found it:
http://www.amazon.com/Fabulous-Fairy-Tale-Follie/dp/0679853162

I typed in 'fairytale stage where's wally book' (in Australia he's called Wally, not Waldo) and luckily it came up in the first page of images.

I remember that book - I borrowed it from my local library!

Hope you find it if you want it - it's a great book.
