Ringo has got lost! And YOU must find him. He's hiding on every spread of this witty illustrated journey through the story of the Fab Four in the style of Where's Wally? A must for any Beatles fan, this album-sized hide-and-seek caper tells the story of the Beatles through 20 fantastically intricate original artworks inspired by key periods in the Fab Four's evolution. Throughout, the ever-present Ringo Starr is hiding waiting to be found, along with an array of Beatle friends and memorabilia, including John Lennon’s glasses, Mick Jagger and the Blue Meanies. Each illustration is accompanied by insightful commentary and trivia about the original artifacts or events that inspired it – from album covers to film scenes to legendary live appearance – with, of course, Ringo’s unique contribution. No matter what their age, Where's Ringo? is the ideal gift for the Beatles completist and new fan alike.
