Hello, World! is a vibrant, graphic picture book compendium for preschoolers set in a Richard Scarry-inspired environment by Geisel Award-winning creator Ethan Long.

Welcome to Happy County, where everyone is out and about! The Bright Brothers are testing their newest invention. Hannah the Handywoman is hunting for her hammer. And Mr. Rhinehorn is just trying to get some sleep!

This primer compendium is chock-full of lovable characters—from Tina Tusker the County Commissioner to Dottie the Dog Walker and Cheese Louise—living in a busy, spirited world full of landmark early-childhood subjects: first words, colors, numbers, shapes, simple maps, naps, school, and plenty of funny scenarios to keep little ones turning the pages. Interactive and on point for the preschool audience.

"Brimful of fun and sure to inspire many repeat readings."—Kirkus Reviews,starred review

Much like Richard Scarry’s Busy, Busy Town, Happy County is populated by a cast of cartoon animals with goofy names and a proclivity for getting into trouble . . . Amid Long’s engaging stories, interactive interstitials offer prompts to spell short words, sing, and seek and find various objects."—Publishers Weekly

Long ventures into Scarry territory with elevated, cartoon-style overviews of Happy County . . . Young visitors will indeed be inclined to “Come back soon!” as the billboard on the road out urges." —Booklist
