I'm looking for a book from my childhood.

From the 80's, it was called The Big Book of Amazing Facts. It was one of those thick telephone-sized books that toy sections used to sell on the wall in the U.S., along with puzzle type books. Lower quality paper if I remember right (the more fibrous, thicker type), and I believe it had a light blue cover with a man on it (drawing) who had an inquisitive look on his face. It was filled with interesting stories, urban legends, and just random facts about a lot of things.
I've found a few random references to it online, but I'd love to be able to purchase a copy of it. Any idea where to track it down?
