Richard Scarry fans (and you know who we … I mean YOU are) rejoice! The artist’s son Huck is publishing a previously undiscovered volume called Best Lowly Worm Book Ever!

 He tells NPR’s Scott Simon that he found the manuscript for Best Lowly Worm Book Ever! in his father’s Swiss chalet.

"I looked here and I looked there, and underneath my father’s desk I indeed found a rather dusty gray portfolio," he says. "And in there, there were a lot of sketches on tracing paper. So it was basically all sketched out and the text had been written — it was done with my father’s typewriter and taped down onto the pages. But he never got around to doing the final art and so that’s what I did."

Read the rest of the story (and find out why it’s okay that Lowly can kick a ball despite having — or being — only one leg) here.

Seeing a lot of posts about the Muppets Beastie Boys mashup, but I’m more partial to Richard Scarry’s Sure Shot.
