Meet the Author

Generations of children all over the world have grown up spending hours poring over RICHARD SCARRY's oversized books filled with all the details of their lives. No other illustrator has shown such interest in the day-to-day words and concepts of childhood. Scarry was raised and educated in Boston. After five years of drawing maps and designing graphics for the U.S. Army, he moved to New York to pursue a career in commercial art. But after showing his portfolio to one of the original editors at Golden Books, he found a home for himself. In the extraordinary career that followed, Richard Scarry illustrated over one hundred books, including almost thirty Little Golden Books and ten Big Golden Books, many of which have never been out of print.
