Airships and magic spells that create fire and slow time don't exist in the real world. That was what Joseph Erift always believed for seventeen years. They were just things you found in fantasy stories and video games. Or so he thought.

Where's Waldo in Hudson!

For the month of July, 24 local businesses will have a standee of Waldo hidden in their shop for kids (and adults!) to find!

After all the excitement, we'll be having a Waldo celebration on August 1st at 1pm at the Learned Owl Book Shop.

So what are you waiting for? Get hunting!

Life is perfect for fifteen-year-old Elinora Wolton...for the most part. Anxious by nature and resistant to the often painful metamorphosis of growing up, she is most content when she is able to avoid uncomfortable feelings and experiences.
