Kid's books with photos & illustrations

I'm looking for great children's books that combine photography with illustration...

My son (he's 5) recently and off-handedly mentioned that he really likes "books with real stuff and drawings," which means illustration overlaid atop or otherwise augmenting photos. One of our favorite examples is James Kochalka's Dragon Puncher - can anyone suggest any others? Thanks!

(As a note, I don't think i've posted to MeFi in 5 years...hmm...funny. Shame on me, though)

The Knuffle Bunny books are like that. (And they're super-awesome.)

Jim Jinkins does this in the Pinky Dinky Do books.

Emma's Journey is like that. Visually it's very nice, but maybe not very interesting to boys. Personally, I find the book mind-bendingly unsound.

Knuffle Bunny, on the other hand, is great fun.
