The illustrations in this book were very well done and helped tell the story as it progressed. In this book there were actually multiple stories that were being told. I found most of them just okay stories, but the last story I really enjoyed. It added humor to an unfortunate day. It takes the reader through all of Mr. Raccoon’s unfortunate encounters- car breaking down, pants ripping, and to top it off just when he thought nothing else could go wrong during the day his bed breaks.

I saw the Richard Scarry's cartoons when I was little and I adored them. It was so funny to find the books and have a chance to read them. I found out I still enjoy these stories and that made me happy.
Richard Scarry's illustrations are adorable, but I think they work best with classics (eg The Gingerbread Man) or his more informational books (eg What Do People Do All Day?). The stories in this book are sometimes cute and sometimes seem to strain for some sort of point or ending.

I'm not sure what I think of this one. I love Richard Scarry activity books and busy day... the informative. Encyclopedia type, but this one wasn't very exciting and ended in a lurch.
