In the classic style of "Where's Waldo?," Where's Warhol? celebrates vibrant scenes that Andy explored and places him among them, ready for you to seek him out. We've also celebrated Andy's keen nose for a happening scene by releasing him into the lost cultural milieus of the past...Hunt out Warhol in 12 scenes and then turn to the end of the book to meet (and try to spot!) the famous people who defined these art-historical spectacles.

It's part puzzle and part art history lesson, which sounds like it would be whimsical in a bad way. It's a Where's Waldo? parody/homage, but not terrible because it's done well. The puzzle portion isn't as difficult as those books where Odlaw, that dog, and dozens of individual people and things are thrown into an overpopulated Rube Goldberg machine of absurdity. In this case, it's a series of Happenings where Andy Warhol pops in and in part of the scene. And it works.

There are some Warhol-appropriate settings, such as a New York park and a gallery where Jim Morrisson and Nico could have been up to something inappropriate for what appears to be a children's book (nothing like that happens, but it's certainly the right environment.) And it has other settings, such as a German Bauhaus building with Futurists and other artists and creations being... well, pretty weird. And it has French Impressionists and Pompeii ruins and a few other historical settings. Sure, you could find some French painters or Salvador Dali, but you can also spot John McEnroe being pouty and Pink Floyd with a flying pig. Because art!

And what better reason is needed?

Gives an account of Warhol and his contributions to pop art, with an emphasis on his acute social and business sense. I also learned that the evil nuttess who tried to murder him - the founder of (and only member of) S.C.U.M. and the writer of its manifesto - actually has the manifesto available online. Numerous images included, though lacks some of the late religious images (Easter eggs, Last Supper, etc.).
