Busy, Busy Townby Richard Scarry
Synopses & Reviews
Beatrix Potter meets I Spy in this detailed and charming storybook adventure
Best friends Julia and Sam are mice who live in the Mouse Mansion. When theyre together they find all sorts of adventures—and all kinds of trouble!
Come with them as they discover a secret hiding place, greet the ragman, and learn to make pancakes. There is a shop that sells everything and a box full of treasure. And—oh no!—there might even be a rat! The Mouse Mansion is always full of surprises.
Author and artist Karina Schaapman spent years building and furnishing the Mouse Mansion in which this collection of stories takes place. The elaborate dollhouse is made of cardboard boxes and papier-mâché and contains more than one hundred rooms to explore.
Presents for young readers some of the many jobs that people do.
Huckle Cat and Lowly Worm provide a fun introduction to Richard Scarry's Busytown, the setting of Busytown Mysteries on TV. Each oversized spread features a different place from the Post Office, to the Supermarket, to the farm. And for each place is a complete, simple story describing the activities, sights and friendly folk who can be found there. Familiar faces like Sargeant Murphy and Miss Honey will welcome readers to this colorful, fun, and very busy town.
Visit Richard Scarry's unique little world, populated by endearing animals of every kind. Readers take a memorable trip down Main Street, which is illustrated in Scarry's signature style — loaded with details that keep children coming back again and again. Ages 3-6.
