About the author

Biography of Scarry, Richard

Richard Scarry Born on June 5, 1919 in Boston. He attended Boston's Museum of Fine Arts School, studying art from 1939 to 1942. He served in the army as an art director, editor, and writer of information publications in North Africa and Italy. After the war Scarry worked in New York as a free-lance illustrator. His first book, Two Little Miners, was published in 1949, followed by five other children's books, published by Simon and Schuster in the same year.

He worked throughout the 50's illustrating books done by various authors, usually for Golden Press. In 1963 he made his breakthrough with Richard Scarry's Best World Book Ever. The large-format book sold seven million copies in twelve years. He also illustrated several books written by J.D. Bevington. After twenty years with Golden Books, Scarry decided to move to Ramdom House. Scarry published over 300 books with total sales of 300 million worldwide, more than any other author. Richard Scarry died in his home in Gstaad on April 30, 1994.

Rated 4.8 out of 5★ by 14reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Love the book I had this book growing up. My mom kept it and now my almost 3 year old son loves finding the Gold Bug. However, the original book has seen its day, so we decided to get a new one. Love it! 08/15/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Encourages children and adults to look carefully My son, who is now 42 years old LOVED looking for Gold bug on each page of this colorfully, fun book. Each page is a delightful as it tells the story of the Pig Family driving to an outing on the beach. They see so many fun, interesting cars and other things that go while making this drive. I am now giving the book to young Mothers of small boys...small girls may enjoy the book, too. This "older" girl still enjoys reading the book and looking for Gold bug. 11/13/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by A great book for toddlers!! Our boys had this book and loved it so much it didn't survive their childhood. I was happy to be able to find a new copy at a great price for my "all boy" grandson - I know he is going to love this book as much as his dad and uncles!! 11/14/2010
Rated 5 out of 5★ by You'll wear this book out! Both of my boys grew up with this book and nearly wore it out. We read it so often that they could find Goldbug before I could! It was fun seeing all the funny types of cars, etc., and we love Scarry's imagination. I buy this book for everyone I know who has small children. 01/02/2011
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great transportation book My 3 year old son loves this book 07/16/2012
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Endless Reading Great value and the book will give endless reading to our children as the book contain a lot of tiny details that make Ricard's Scarry book different than the others. 08/03/2010
Rated 5 out of 5★ by super duper fantastic Got this book for my little grandson. He just loves it! I would highly recommend this book ! 03/26/2009
Rated 3 out of 5★ by Great way to introduce vehicles The vehicles in this book are typical cars and trucks you would see. Of course they have slipped in the silly cars that get children interested. My son loved to search for the character hiding on every single page. 01/06/2010
