  • This type of illustration is known in German as a 'Wimmelbild', and are typically found in children-oriented books called Wimmelbilderbuch ( literally: "teeming pictures book" ).

Looks like PM likes them too! https://company.playmobil.com/Company/de-DE/interesting/wimmelbild

Thanks for pointing that out Macruran!

I like the Pterosaur in the duck pond best.
At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)

If you google the artist's name (Christoph Hoppenbrock) you can see he does a bunch of Wimmelbilder, though only two PM ones as far as I can tell through a multisecond internet search. This is the other one:

Nice catch, Macruran.  I almost mentioned Hoppenbrock, but passed because some of his non-PM illustrations can be a bit 'risqué' ( not kid appropriate ).
