Great illustrations! Such a treasure. Too bad this book will be banned from libraries and used book sellers because of CPSIA!

Such a neat book. I love the colors!

I can certainly see why this appealed to you -- fabulous graphics with great colors and a very interesting subject. I've never seen anything like it.

I just got inspired by your post and found this book, 1st printing, at eBay and ordered it immediately. I love the illustrations - thanks for introducing me to Adrienne Adams!
Greetings from Cologne, Germany!

Great illustrations....when I looked back to see the name of the illustrator was Adrienne Adams I was not surprised. Adrienne Adams is one of my very favourite illustrators. I have a copy of Cabbage Moon from the 1960's which was my first introduction to Adrienne's illustrations. I always loved that book almost soley due to the illustrations as a child. I now read that book to my son and still enjoy the pictures:) I had not seen this set of illustrations yet though.....so thanks very much! Such a great illustrator!

oh I love this book! Unfortunately though you've just made it my life's mission to hunt it down and own it's prettiness for myself (hope I am as lucky as lucylawless!)
