Really-vague-book-(or movie)-filter: Looking for a boy in a stamp

I'm looking for a book (though it might have been a movie about a book) where the child protagonist finds a stamp on a letter or in a book and, upon closer inspection, sees a little boy waving in the stamp. Then he goes on an adventure to try to find this little boy or more stamps or something.

I'm sorry for my spotty details but this has been driving me nuts, and googling +boy +stamp +book +waving doesn't really help me. I am absolutely I'm not trying to find Waldo.

Best answer: Was it Tommy Tricker and the Stamp Traveller?

(Featuring a young Rufus Wainwright?)

Response by poster: Wow. The plotline seems exactly right, yet the screenshots are not at all familiar. I will check it out though. Thanks Alvy!
(sidenote: I am glad that Rufus realized the 'hawk was not working out)

Was it Zoom, by Istvan Banyai?

I tried looking around, and could only find a few pics of the inside here.

Best answer: I second Tommy Tricker, I immediately thought of this movie as I clicked to see that Alvy Ampersand had already suggested it.

Response by poster: It wasn't Zoom, avoision--it definitely had a plot. Thank you, though.

I think I'm going go with Tommy Tricker--maybe the sequel (who would think a movie about stamp traveling would need a sequel?) The Return of Tommy Tricker.

Thanks to Alvy and maxpower! I love askmefi. Love.
