really liked it
bookshelves: caldecott-challenge
Read in January, 2012

Caldecott Honor Book, 1972

Favorite illustration: page 22

Art Medium: Pen and ink, yellow overlays

Favorite line: "Hildilid sang it lullabies, poured it a saucer of milk, shook her fist at it, smoked it in the chimney, stamped on it, spanked it, dug a grave for it, and she even--I am sorry to say--spat at the night."
