Navigate your way through these satirical scenes of modern city life—scope out the best route to the bathroom at a first date restaurant, hunt for the rotten food your roommate left in the fridge, or track down that cute guy at the farmers market—in this humorous Where’s Waldo-style grown-up seek and find activity book.

A charming mix of humor, creativity, and activity, this adult seek-and-find book is a collection of playfully illustrated, large-format scenes, from a weekend farmers market to the inside of a commuter’s bag, along with humorous lists like takeout orders by Zodiac sign. Satirical, engaging, and lighthearted, Where Did My Roommate Put My Charger?creatively skewers the less-than-glamorous aspects of the life of an urban twenty- to thirty-something.
