About the Book
"Put your finger in the hole to find Henny's lost egg"--Cover.
From the Publisher
Henny laid an egg and then lost it. As Henny searches the farm for her precious egg, children will love guessing what happened. A die-cut hole throughout the book invites interactivity and a fuzzy spot of plush adds a delightful tactile quality to this Touch-and-Feel Board Book. The 1967 beloved Richard Scarry classic gets a new trim size and new, lower price!

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.

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.
