Scarry stuff...

We are big fans of the Richard Scarry books in our house...

Luke loves all the little characters and cars...

I've often thought that Huckle and Lowly Worm would make great softies...

(images from my latest charity shop buy, storybook £1.45)

and talking of softies, 'Pink' has arrived in the Etsy shop this afternoon!

EDIT TO POST
3 owls, 1 pink cat and 1 pink kitten SOLD, thank you!

I used to love Richard Scarry books when I was a child and have just bought one for Fred but I don't think he has taken much notice of it yet - I may need to introduce him to it properly!!!

Oh I well remember sitting with the smalls poring over Richard Scarry. Well, not him personally, but his books. The illustrations are wonderful!

Cute pink stuff! x

I had a Lowly Worm book as a little girl and really enjoyed it - loved his single little boot. Gorgeous pink things, sorry to have missed the owls.

I love the illustrations in Richard Scarry's books. Monster loves them too as there is so much to look at in the pictures.

Your pink shop looks gorgeous and great news on the sales!

Oh my god, I havent seen these books since I was a little nipper. me and my sister would read them all the time. Thanks for bringing back the memories. After having 2 children, I tend not to have a memory anymore!! Well, they do say your brain cells start to disappear after having kids dont they. Love your blog, keep up the good work.

We love Richard Scarry's books too. There is a Finnish author, Mauri Kunnas, he's books have a lot of detail too. Sven Nordqvist is a great Swedish writer and illustrator of children's books. Maybe you could find their books translated at your library? Your pink animals are so sweet!

Che bello! Quando ero piccola tutte le domeniche al mattino stavo nel letto e sfogliavo questi libretti! ... Quanti ricordi!
Grazie!
Un bacio NuX

Ohh! We had one of those books when I was younger. My sister and I loved it. It was a big book so we use to lay it on the floor with both of us looking at the pictures. I loved the funny cars =)
