The funny little orange-furred orangutan is always surrounded by friends at the zoo. But time after time Wallaces wanderlust drives him to escape from his comfortable day-to-day existence with his friend the zookeeper--to a department store, to the circus, to a baseball game, to the beach. The zookeeper is not as disturbed as you might imagine by Wallaces repeated breakouts. In fact, one might almost think he plants the ideas in Wallaces head himself... After all, every time Wallace disappears, its up to the zookeeper to find him, even if that means spending an hour or two at an amusement park or the nature museum. For over 35 years, readers of all ages have gleefully searched these pages for the mischievous ape. Hilary Knight, well-loved illustrator of the Eloise series, among many other picture books, created a classic with Wheres Wallace?. Each of nine intricately detailed panoramic pictures is packed with lively, humorous activity, making the search for Wallace a delightful challenge. For those who pride themselves on having found the orange fellow on every spread, the book ups the ante. See if you can find the six additional characters accompanying Wallace on every adventure, including a cello player, a jogger, and an old woman who manages to keep knitting in the most unusual places! (Ages 4 to 7) --Emilie Coulter
