I recently got hold of these 1962 Dr Seuss books. Most of them were first published in1960. They're a bargain pick up for about $1 each! Love them.
I also got this old edition of Hans Christian Anderson's The Ugly Duckling. It's not such a fave with the young readers, there's something a bit gloomy about it.
This is Scatterbrain Sally, Peach's current favourite. I can almost recite Scatterbrain Sally off by heart. It's about a little girl who, in trying to help her mother with the housework, almost burns the house down, flushes the goldfish down the sink, and floods the bathroom. It's also a goldie from 1962.
It's got beautiful illustrations. This is Sally almost burning the house down.
When usual can't resist a pretty little 'dust-collector' when I see one. The girls are getting quite the collection in their room.
I must try to keep a lid on the kitsch, lest it gets out of hand.
