richard scarry is one of my all time favourite illustrators. his work is so colourful, expressive and undeniably, instantly recognisable as his. this, like many other childrens books i own is from a charity shop. every now and then here i find some amazing ones! you can buy this book from amazon if you can’t find it in a charity shop or used bookshop near you. it’s one of my favourites and i love looking through it.
did you ever watch ‘the busy world of richard scarry’? i loved that too! i remember when i worked in the library at school there was a pc game about it too that i loved playing. if you (or you and your little ones) love children’s illustration/books, you should check out and contribute to fritha of tigerlilly quinns’ posts called ‘we like to read‘.
is it me or does his hat have a smiley face on it? and the buttons/pockets on his dungarees! i also LOVE what he’s wearing!
love the sun and moon on the back and front inside covers. nice to be greeted by a book, isn’t it.
seriously, how cute is this?
this is just a section of an illustration but i love the colour combo and scale.
