inside scarry—

I just reclaimed my old beloved Richard Scarry's Best Counting Book Ever. Sandwiched between the 70 Seventy spread was a translucent Radio Shack bag with some funny contents: a stack of dried pansies and this drawing of Lowly the Worm—my favorite Richard Scarry character. Mister Scarry kept my imagination busy for a huge chunk of my childhood. Come to find out his wife had the same name as my mother—Patricia Murphy.

oh hark, yes, some of my favorite childhood books as well. Searching for a tiny yellow bird, and the pig family. Such great characters!
