Classic Richard Scarry: gifted humorist, national treasure, newly published by Faber.
Scarry captures all the hustle and bustle of Busytown through a series of delightful, brightly illustrated stories. Flossie, Big Hilda, Mother Cat, Squeaky Mouse and a cast of Scarry's most popular characters are off to pick spring flowers, watch fireworks at the Pig family picnic, help the postman deliver letters, and celebrate holidays, family and friends. This is the perfect introduction to everyday grown-up life - ever!
Richard Scarry is unquestionably one of the most-loved children's authors of all time. He wrote more than 250 books which have gone on to sell more than 150 million copies globally that have been translated into dozens of languages. Mr. Scarry, who was born in Boston and moved to Switzerland in 1968, once wrote: 'It's a precious thing to be communicating to children, helping them discover the gift of language and thought. I'm happy to be doing it.'
