Where's Walrus? Book Trailer

Steve Heller blogs: "My favorite illustrated children’s book of the year (I know we’re only a month into it) Stephen Savage’s Where’s Walrus? (Scholastic) is a delightfully graphic romp through the city with a runaway walrus. And here is an equally delightful video of Savage’s errant beast. Take that Waldo!" (the trailer was created by David Franklin of Artisanal Television).

  1. I hope beyond hope that "Where's Walrus" is an homage to Hillary Knight's book, "Where's Wallace," which is wonderful, as opposed to "Where's Waldo," which is trivial. I believe that Walrus and Wallace share a subtly subversive and ironic sense of reality. Poor Waldo lacks any sense of irony and has only his striped shirt and glasses for identity.

    And I think I've fallen in love with the video. Can I meet Walrus between the lions?
