Richard Scarry (1919-1994) is one of the world's best-loved children's authors EVER! Generations of children all over the world have grown up spending hours poring over books filled with all
the colourful details of their daily lives. No other illustrator has shown such a lively interest in words and concepts of early childhood.When ever he was asked how old he was, Scarry would
always put one hand up and laugh, saying, "five".
