Take the Children, written and illustrated by Dorothy King, Morrow, 1945, 1st pr

Take the Children.

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. This book is said to reflect the urgency of repatriating children after the confusion of World War Two. I had the 1945 version as a child, the 1951 version would not have had the little Russian figure. Probably influenced me... see the interesting comment below. Note: This book has been sold.

Kellogg's Funny Jungleland. (1909).

Kellog's Funny Jungleland.

Very funny creatures, which allow for multiple transformations. This toy was published by Kellogg over many years, with gradual shifts in illustration. These are abundant, and I picked this up because it was available and I was collecting advertizing pamphlets, but you can get one in nicer condition for a reasonable price. Note: This Book Has Been Sold.

Barn swallow, robin red breast, ruffled grouse, king fisher, scarlet tanager, American crow, tufted Puffin. Circle head puzzle pieces may be matched to bodies.

Farmyard Play  Book. A Panorama. (1940)

Farmyard Play Book. A Panorama. (1940)

Big bright die cut animals, depicted on both sides of these cards and hinged with green cloth tape, so that a whole row of animals can stand up: rooster, rabbit, goat, cat, goose, sheep, dog, pig. It may be time for the fine animals in this lovely old panorama to become a nursery mobile, or the hinges could be repaired. The collectible value, though, is pretty much gone. Note: This book has been sold.
