In a pretty realistic story, six children lose their name tags on their trip home on an ocean liner, and they need the reader's help in getting home.
The shape kittens on the covers have nice expressions and huge eyes, and they are very prettily dressed. The kittens in the rambling stories have shed their clothes. Quite an unusual little piece. Note: This book has been sold.
An ingenious walk through Mother Goose Town with nice 40's illustrations. Note: This book has been sold.
Fuzzy Wuzzy books appealed to little children, who enjoy the texture of books. The spirit of post-war Christmas's! Nice and fuzzy in a jacket worn on the back. PLEASE NOTE: This book has been sold.
A resolutely cheerful poem about family camping, quite fun, with sweet pictures in lovely colours.
A very stylish panorama with distinctive colouration and line, well constructed. A workman pastes circus sign on a billboard as children watch, then we see the attractions of the circus, one by one. Unattributed artist.
Hilarious drawings by an uncredited artist. The bad boy licks all the labels off his sister's O. N. T. Clark's Spool Cotton and applies them in imaginative places! In "Big Brother gets his Girl's Picture" the brother is holding an envelope with the signature of the famous celebrity photographer Napoleon Sarony, 1821 - 1896, but opens it to find his beloved's face covered by a label. The Bad Boy's tricks are such a hit that at the end of the pamphlet, we see him writing away for more. The relationship, if any, between Clark and Sarony is puzzling. Clark died in 1873; Sarony started his photography studio around 1866, but was already well known as a lithographer, thus our [ca 1870] dating.
