Very cute/adorable illustrations.

Susan, can you describe the illustrations - e.g., simple or detailed, realistic or cartoon-like, painted watercolors or bold graphics, bright or dark colors, black & white? Do they remind you of a similar illustrator or picture book author?

Susan | 4 comments Hi Kris, the illustrations were cartoon like, colorful, very cute. It might have been an Elf Book but didn’t find it searching (it’s not The Puppy, but similar illustration type). It was smaller than a Little Golden Book.

But it was first pubbed in 1981.

Susan | 4 comments I’m actually searching for my sister. She remembers it from our childhood and she was born in 1962. The illustrations she remembers look circa 50s, 60s; perhaps 40s.
