    I lived Richard Scarry books, so when I saw the logo, I went to learn more about him on Wikipedia. It said his daughters are professional socialites and I thought “isn’t it ironic that an artist known for Busytown and documenting every kind of job available would have children with no jobs?”

    We still have Richard Scarry books from when I was a kid, and my kids love them. Glad that Google recognized him!
