    One thought on “Richard Scarry's Funniest Storybook Ever!”

    1. This may be my favorite Richard Scarry book, at least as an adult. The drawings are awesome! We had a lot of books but didn’t have his books when I was a child, as far as I recall. But I’d read one of them that a neighbor or relative had, and *loved* how much seemed to be going on in all the pictures. In this book I noticed that often words told a different story than the drawings (e.g when Mr. Fixit “fixes” things, he breaks them; and a runaway car “came to a stop” in the kitchen=it [...]

    2. Richard Scarry's books are classics. They have delightful illustrations that are full of color and movement; in fact, his page spreads are unlike other picture books. His have many busy scenes happening all at once. It might take a page or two before your eye and mind adjust.And you don't really read Scarry's books for a story either. They're more discovery and exploration books - so make sure you have time to take it all in. Don't have an agenda with where each page will go, just enjoy soaking [...]

    3. Would be more accurately titled Richard Scarry's Most Mildly Amusing Storybook Ever! The ubiquitous mishaps in Scarry's scenes work great in the background but come across as more pitiful than funny when made the subject. I'd have given this one two stars, except that several of the stores warn of the dangers of distracted driving and walking, an exceptionally important lesson in these crazy days of driving on the phone and walking aimlessly while texting.

    4. While my kid would like to give this 10 starsif I have to read it ONE more time, I'm going to lose it. Maybe it's not that bad? I don't know, I've just totally OD'd on it. I'm exaggerating when I say I have read it 3 times a day for the last 5 months. I truly wish I never brought this book in my house.

    5. We can't get enough of Sargent Murphy, Lowly, Big Hilda, and Flossie at the nightly Family Bedtime Storytime. I love Richard Scarry's work as much now as I did when I was the recipient of the nightly stories.

    6. My dear little boy that I babysit loved this so much. We sat on the sofa and pointed out our favorite parts of the stories. He loved the cute and funny illustrations of the animal characters.

    7. So classic. I love this story book and could never find it, and thought I'd imagined it. (Tanglefoot, what kind of a story is that— SURPRISE IT IS A LOVELY STORY I DID NOT INVENT.)
