its a worm driving an apple car

As you know, we are big fans of Maurice Sendak here at Grow Fonder (although Lou loves Where the Wild Things Are, I think my all time favourite is In the Night Kitchen)

Anyway. The other day my flatmate emailed me this whole pile of illustrations by Richard Scarry. Do
you remember him?

His work wasn't quite as intriguing as Sendaks,perhaps, but the art he created is striking and immediately loveable. There's a whole lot of action and detail, little elements of surrealism and lots of happy and helpful animals who drive cars made out of apples or doughnuts.

I remember being really into Richard Scarry's Busy Busy World when I was little...,,,
