About the Author
Born in 1919, Richard Scarry was raised and educated in Boston, Massachusetts. After five years of drawing maps and designing graphics for the US Army, he moved to New York to pursue a career in commercial art. But after showing his portfolio to one of the original editors at Golden Books, he found the perfect home for his children's books. The assignments first given to Scarry tended to be Little Golden Books that featured popular characters of the day, such as Winky Dink, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and Smokey the Bear. Eventually Scarry created many original characters, such as Lowly Worm and Huckle Cat. But first came Nicholas, a young rabbit clad in red overalls, for the now-iconic board book I Am a Bunny. After Scarry married children's textbook writer Patricia Murphy, she wrote many stories for him as Patsy Scarry, including the bestselling Little Golden Books Good Night, Little Bear and The Bunny Book.
In his extraordinary career, Richard Scarry illustrated more than 150 books, many of which have never been out of print. His books have sold over 100 million copies around the world and are currently published in more than 20 languages. Richard Scarry Jr., also an illustrator, carries on his father's work today under the name of Huck Scarry. Richard Scarry passed away at his home in Gstaad, Switzerland, in 1994. He was posthumously awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Society of Illustrators in 2012.

In "product details" it says "Paperback: 365 pages". It does not have that many pages, it has 48 pages. I've bought big books by Richard Scarry in the past with over 200 pages, so I thought it was going to be one of those. I do have another book by Scholastic of this series, but somehow I thought by the quantity of pages that it was some kind of compilation of stories.
It is not. I'm hugely disappointed by that error. It should be fixed.
I rate the book 5 stars as the letters were slightly on the big side, perfect for first readers, my three years old loves it, the illustrations were beautifully printed and the paper is of a nice quality.
I rate 0 stars whoever wrote the description.
