    Richard Scarry Little Benny Wanted a Pony Illustration Pages 24 and 25 Original Art (Simon and Schuster, 1950). The "corpulent mayor" goes flying out of his red plush chair, in this delightful two-page illustration from the beloved children's book by Oliver O'Conner Barrett. Rare early Richard Scarry artwork, created in gouache on a single piece of illustration board; image area measures approximately 12.75" x 5.75". You can tell how "busy" the Mayor was by the paper airplanes and cut-paper figures on the floor! Lovely stuff from a nostalgic time. Very Good condition with minor handling and edge wear.
