Summary

Richard Scarry and Christmas combine to create this adventurous holiday picture book!

It's Christmas, and Richard Scarry's beloved cast of Busytown characters are gearing up for the holiday! And nobody is more excited than Mr. Frumble. In fact, he's so excited he sets out for the North Pole to become one of Santa Bear's helpers. But when Santa Bear mixes up the dates and starts his deliveries the night before the night before Christmas, it's up to the ever-clumsy Mr. Frumble to save the holiday for his Busytown friends! Full of detailed illustrations, humor, and adventure, The Night Before the Night Before Christmas! is the perfect way for children--and Scarry fans of all ages--to celebrate the holiday season.


Author Notes

Richard Scarry Born on June 5, 1919 in Boston. He attended Boston's Museum of Fine Arts School, studying art from 1939 to 1942. He served in the army as an art director, editor, and writer of information publications in North Africa and Italy.

After the war Scarry worked in New York as a free-lance illustrator. His first book, Two Little Miners, was published in 1949, followed by five other children's books, published by Simon and Schuster in the same year. He worked throughout the 50's illustrating books done by various authors, usually for Golden Press. In 1963 he made his breakthrough with Richard Scarry's Best World Book Ever. The large-format book sold seven million copies in twelve years. He also illustrated several books written by J.D. Bevington. After twenty years with Golden Books, Scarry decided to move to Ramdom House. Scarry published over 300 books with total sales of 300 million worldwide, more than any other author.

Richard Scarry died in his home in Gstaad on April 30, 1994.
