Busy, Busy Town



From the Busytown Harbor to the Busytown School, this is one busy town.

Huckle, Lowly, and the gang march off TV's popular Busytown Mysteries and fill this enchanting book with all the goings-on of the busiest town ever.

There's no one like Richard Scarry for engaging a young reader. With oversized pages loaded with detail, every spread tells a simple story and provides lots to look at. The Fixer-uppers, go about their work plastering, painting, and papering while the plumber downstairs hurries to stop a leaky pipe. While at the airport, passengers board planes, fuel tanks are filled, and air traffic controllers tell pilots when to take off and when to land.

For almost every "why," "what," and "how" a child asks, the answer can almost surely be found in a Richard Scarry book. Rebranded to make for a cohesive and shelf-friendly package, this clean new exterior contains all of the original interior.
