Young adult illustrated novel?

I'm drawing a blank on the title and author of a YA book I perused in a bookstore a few years ago.

It is a young adult novel, and from my memory of the first few pages it is about a overly-intelligent and precious kid (maybe about 10-12?) who writes and organizes everything: maps of his room and his town, lists of all kinds, etc. At the beginning the boy is discussing an upcoming trip to...somewhere. I forget, and that's as far as I read.
The book is heavily--and very charmingly--illustrated and the format is almost a trade paperback, almost a graphic novel, but maybe it would be more accurate to call it an illustrated novel.
Like I said, I can't remember the title or author and I haven't run into that book since. I believe when I saw it, it was a new release, maybe 2 or 3 years ago? Ring any bells for anyone?
