Where's Waldo type search-and-find children's book. Dec 29, AM. I had a book in the late '80's to early '90s that was like Where's Waldo, but was much more in-depth.

I remember that one of the pages was like a room full of gifts for a child's birthday and it provided a list of things to find on the pages. Another page was a jungle and you had to find a specific flower to help the character with the flower which would provide an antidote to a disease he is trying to solve.
