Visually Busy Books ala Richard Scarry?

Good Questions

Q: With all this snowy, icy weather, I've been staying in a lot with my almost 2 year old and doing LOTS of reading. Her current favorite book is Cars and Trucks and Things that Go by Richard Scarry. I like this book, too, because there's so much to look at that it remains fresh even after multiple (and I mean MULTIPLE) readings. Along the same lines, we also have Around the Town All Year Round by Rotraut Susanne Berner. Do you and your readers know of other similar books- ones with lots of details, stories to follow, and things to find on every page?

Editor: Well, of course, there are the Waldo books (I know, two Waldo mentions in one day??). Readers, what books can you recommend with oodles of visual interest similar to the two Jenny mentioned?
