21893 Bobby and Jane Hurry Through the Rain to Make a Trip on the Hanky Train.

Bobby and Jane Hurry Through the Rain...

Note: This book has been sold.
Happy Holidays!! In a decorated box with all hankies untouched: Bright primary colours with an almost Czech folkloric feel: the entire book is bordered in red scallops and the train runs along a blue track.

Each car: the Engine, the Hanky Limited, Parlor, Diner, Sleeper, Reserved and Baggage/Mail, has a different design around the windows and stamped on the wheels and roof. Each panel has a cheery poem and a little bird or duck or mouse offering side comments on the action.

The hankies have a more typical l940's/50's US "vintage" style, picturing animals and children and leaning toward blue and yellow, in inexpensive sized cotton. The box is decorated with little figures in primary colours of animals and toys.  

All is designed to make a child feel adventurous, safe, and happy. The yellow and green striped caboose bears letter banners saying Home Sweet Home and the text reads
"Hey Bobby, Oh Jane, get off the train.
The rooster shouts again and again
Mother and Daddy are waiting for you
Take the six Hankies and Good By, you two!
