Yes, there is a ‘Waldo’ out there that appears in pictures, and his only reason for being is to see if readers can find out where old ‘Waldo’ is hiding. However, now that Momo has come along - a border collie who is the sweetest creature readers have seen in a long time - ‘Waldo’ will definitely have to take a backseat to the beauty and creativity of this book.
The photographs that Momo plays hide-and-seek in range from exterior landscapes to interiors; the photographs that Andrew Knapp has put together are out of this world. Cityscapes, fields of snow, deserted back roads, football stadiums; some that are so colorful and so full of brightness and light, it will most definitely take you a while to find that border collie. (Thankfully, Mr. Knapp added some hints for the really ‘busy’ photographs so that Momo can eventually be found.)
Not only does this book truly offer honor to our canine friends, which may be just about the most honorable animals in the world, but it also gives readers a look at the beauty that this world still has to offer us. With so many negatives that the news and life emit each and every day, it is a breath of fresh air to have a book like this in hand. Andrew Knapp has made sure to show one and all that our surroundings, family, Mother Nature, and the glorious fun and comfort of a companion like Momo - are all privileges to love and admire.
Momo stories, his travels, his bio and more, are also offered so that the reader gets the full spectrum of enjoyment that this lovely border collie has to offer. Although ‘Waldo’ may be fun, Momo is most definitely the one who will find a place in your heart for a good, long time to come.
Quill says: Unique and stunning. By meeting, traveling and ‘finding’ Momo, you will definitely rejuvenate your spirit!
