Where’s the Challenge Now?: Where’s Waldo addition

Finding people can be challenging. You search the crowd and look all over the place for them. You must be missing them or something! How can you not find them?!

What if I told you there was a science to finding Waldo? Would you believe me? If you answered no, you maybe should rethink that conclusion.

Research was conducted on the 7 most popular Where’e Waldo books. From each of these books, the location of Waldo was  measured and plotted on a map of a book page.
