My father read this to me and my brother every night with this book that must have been from his youth cuz the fucker was old. I tried to find it on eBay but since so many people gots the nostalgia for dis book, it's like $40+. It's on my wishlist, as I collect the pleasant memories of my youth.
This was one of my favorite books when I was a child! I loved all the families on What A Jolly Street and always wished I lived on a street like that! When my kids were little I looked all over for a copy for them but never was able to find one. This is a true classic!
My favourite book as a child. I remember looking forward to the story each night and then a few years later reading them to my younger brother. This is the sort of book that stays with you throughout your life. I went on to read it to my children and hopefully one day will read it to my grandchildren. It's old and worn and the pages are falling out which shows it is a much loved book.

This cover is so wrong...

This is the absolute bestest daily bedtime stories book! My great-aunt gave us a copy with the original 1955 illustrations when I was little, but we lost it in a move, and I looked and looked and looked for something half as good, but found nothing that remotely compared except Bible story books, which are not quite the same thing.

While many books have an individual story for each day, in this book the stories are all somehow linked to the families on Trufflescootums Bou

I do not remember this cover, so am guessing it is the same book my oldest sister used to read to me before bedtime. As I learned to read, I re-visited stories, picking and choosing the ones I liked, rather than start to end as my sister did.

I either had a copy or borrowed my sister's when I started having children of my own. Again, I skipped around, because some of the stories bored me.
Recently found this at a thrift shop, and recognized the cover instantly. A wonderful step back to the child's world of the 60's, and fun to note all the politically incorrect content!
I loved this book when I was little. I have been searching for a copy for my own kids. Loved the stories & the little lessons in them!
My mother bought me this wonderful book the year it was published. I still have it and read it to my grandchildren.
I had completely forgotten about this book till I saw it on Ebay. I remember that I loved the illustrations.
