My son "the editor" posted this on Facebook, "This book has been in print since 1969. Wonder how long this typo has been in it?" Although I recognize the illustrations as Richard Scarry's, I still don't know which book he was reading.
I stared at the picture, read it over and over, checked punctuation, and still couldn't find what was wrong. Funny how the brain wants to automatically correct what is out of place and fool us into thinking it's right...
It wasn't until my youngest daughter commented that I realized the error. Do you see it?
