You know how on the back cover of every Berenstain Bears book there was a grid of thumbnail images of other titles in the series? Every time the cover of this book appeared in the grid, my parents had to put a square of duct tape over it because I was TERRIFIED of it. Like could not even look at the little one-inch by one-inch square rendering of it. And it appeared a lot because we had about a million of the books, which I loved entirely, except for that one. RIP, Berenstains.
(I almost just said “HANG IN THERE, RICHARD SCARRY!” but apparently he passed away in 1994. And apparently his granddaughters are hottie socialites. WHAT DO PEOPLE DO ALL DAY?)

Still a question I have.

The closest a Google illustration has ever come to making me tear up. Richard Scarry!

One day perhaps I will share with the world how any semblance of a moral compass I now posses was derived almost entirely from Pig Will and Pig Won’t. (Also Goofus and Gallant but ugh.)
