A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month March 2018

 Take a trip to Busytown! Not surprisingly, everyone has a job to do and what a lot of different kinds of jobs there are! Within this hugely enjoyable book there are a number of short stories about different kinds of work starting with ‘Mother’s work is never done’ which shows a very busy pig family and ends with a broken bed! One of the nicest is a voyage on a ship which includes an appealing cross-section of all the activity on board a ship. The many jobs involved in building roads, running trains and working in a hospital are just some of the others also covered in this book which provides fun and information in words and pictures. 

Richard Scarry's classic has been a favourite with children the world over for 50 years. Share the magic of Scarry's Busytown with this beautiful anniversary collector's edition.

This book is a favourite of Simon Bartram, September 2010 Guest Editor: "This Richard Scarry book was etched into my memory at a very early age and I'm sure that, deep down, it has influenced my work to this day. I loved and still love the amazing attention to detail and the humour that pack the pages. Even though it was first published a long time ago and much has changed since, the likeable cats, bears and pigs continue to entertain and educate youngsters about the world around them. Personally I love the fire-fighting foxes and digger-driving mice."
