Packed with pictures and things to spot on every page, this classic has been refreshed to bring the world of Richard Scarry to a new generation of readers. What do people do all day? This is the perfect book to introduce children to the world of work. From doctors to dressmakers, mothers to sailors, we follow a colourful collection of busy people working through their busy days. Captain Sally and his crew are getting ready to go on a voyage, Sergeant Murphy is working hard to keep things safe and peaceful, while engineers are building new roads. Another busy day in Busytown!
Born in Boston in 1919, Richard Scarry's drawing talent led him to study at the Boston Museum School. He began his career in New York City as an illustrator and freelance artist, and in 1963 he published his first book, The Best Word Book Ever, which became an international best-seller.
