It’s that time of year again: Where’s Waldo season! Each July, kids come into Parnassus to start their Green Hills neighborhood scavenger hunt for that little guy in stripes. And we canines are prepared. In fact, we decided to get into the spirit by hiding all around the shop. Well, all of us except Opie. He doesn’t quite get it. Here, take a look . . .

Now that you’ve had some practice searching for shop dogs, you’re ready to look for Waldo (and his pooch, Woof)!
The FIND WALDO LOCAL hunt begins July 1, and children are invited to come to Parnassus to get their official Waldo Passports anytime throughout the month. Kids can take their passports to more than 25 participating Green Hills businesses to get official stamps and signatures. Once they’ve collected at least 10 different signatures or stamps, they can show their passport at Parnassus Books to claim a special prize button and a $1 off coupon. If they collect at least 20 different signatures or stamps, they can bring their passport back to Parnassus to get a button and a coupon, AND they’ll be entered into a drawing to win a deluxe set of Waldo books and other awesome prizes! Everyone’s invited back on Friday, July 31, at 3 p.m. for the big FIND WALDO celebration, where we’ll hold the grand prize drawings and have tasty refreshments and fun activities. A real live Waldo will even stop by to pose for pictures!
(Fine print: Coupons are limited to the first 100 Waldo spotters. Parnassus Books encourages readers of all ages to participate in Find Waldo; but buttons, coupons, and prize drawing eligibility are limited to children ages 14 and under. Limit one entry per participant.)
