Guy | 2 comments Hi,
As a child I was heavily into books like Wheres Wally, or other heavily detailed cartoon type books, especially Find It types, I remember in the mid /early 90's I had a book that was similar to Where's Wally only it was space (kinda) themed and I believe you had to go through each page finding items to help an alien or space man progress through the 'story'. I'm incredibly vague with the details I just remember the odd object or two like space motorbikes or having to find specific tree's with a fruit of a certain colour or an exact type of remote control / gadget amongst lots of items in a scenario of similar items. I'm sorry if this post is useless but I'm one of those people who are heavy on nostalgia and would love to see it again. I'd say this book must have come out around 95, art style similar to Wheres Wally but again, I was about 6 years old at the time!

Thank you.
