This unique collection of Richard Scarry’s Little Golden Books brims with colorful cars, droll animals, and a sly fox or two. From fables (“The Country Mouse and the City Mouse”) to folktales (“The Gingerbread Man”) to goodnight stories (Good Night, Little Bear), there are hours of fun for everyone in this beautifully bound book. Favorites such as The Animals of Farmer Jones and The Bunny Book are here, along with stories that have not been available in many years, such as Polite Elephant, Cars and Trucks, Chicken Little, and even Duck and His Friends, which was originally published in 1949. Breathtaking illustrations and stories currently found only in this volume make it a gift to cherish.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Vicki Foote
Nine “Little Golden Books” are combined in one in this compilation of books all illustrated by Richard Scarry. The original version of each book was published in the 1940s and through the 1950s. Most are very familiar stories, such as “Chicken Little,” “the Gingerbread Man,” and “the Country Mouse and City Mouse.” Unlike some of the newer versions of “Chicken Little,” Scarry’s version has Foxy Loxy eating all the farm animals, including Chicken Little. In “The Gingerbread Man,” Gingerbread Man also gets eaten by a fox at the end of the story. “Cars and Trucks” has a simple narrative with one sentence per page and bright and colorful illustrations. “The Bunny Book” is a sweet story about a baby bunny deciding what to be when he grows up. “The Polite Elephant” shows examples of the elephant being polite, while “Duck and his Friends” relates a little adventure between a duck, a mouse, and a rabbit. There are three stories from one previous book, “The Country Mouse and the City Mouse, “The Fox and the Crow,” and “The Dog and his Bone.” The last tale is “Good Night, Little Bear,” in which Little Bear thinks he’s hiding on Father Bear’s back when it is time for bed. A letter from Huck Scarry, Richard and Patsy Scarry’s son, provides some personal comments about the creation of the stories. This book is a tribute to the artist’s outstanding illustrations and is a nice collection of the stories. Reviewer: Vicki Foote; Ages 3 to 7.

Meet the Author

RICHARD SCARRY (1919-1994) is one of the world's best-loved children's book authors ever! Generations of children all over the world have grown up spending hours poring over his books filled with the colorful details of their lives. No other illustrator has shown such a lively interest in the words and concepts of early childhood. Raised and educated in Boston, Scarry moved to New York after a stint in the army to pursue a career in commercial art. But after showing his portfolio to one of the original editors at Golden Books in 1948, he found the perfect home for his children's books. In the extraordinary career that followed, Richard Scarry illustrated well over 100 books, many of which have never been out-of-print.
