This colorfully illustrated book was published in 1926 by Whitman Publishing Company.
I love illustrations of animals dressed and acting like real people!
The color illustrations in the book were done by Ray Gleason. A quick Google of his name tells me that he illustrated a lot of books.
The black and white illustrations and hand lettering were done by Earnest Vetsch. He also illustrated a lot of books. I love the hand lettering in this little book. It reminds me of Susan Branch's books and cookbooks. (Did you know that Susan has a blog now? It is fabulous!! Go and check it out right now.
I would pick a puppy any day, too!
My mother used to bounce me on her knee and sing "To Market, To Market".
Don't know what to make of "Little Tom Twig". That's one I hadn't heard before.
Love the border on the Humpty Dumpty page.
I was Little Bo Peep for Halloween one year.
