It has been way too long since I showed one of my childhood books. With Easter just around the corner, I pulled out Mr Grabbit. Published in 1952, this is a Whitman "Tell-A-Tale" book. I must have acquired it much later, probably the late 60s. Note: any teeth marks seen in my old books are reminders of my family's black Lab, Toby.
The illustrations in the book are very bright and cheery. The story is about a rabbit who is greedy and takes more of everything than what he needs.
The above umbrella incident, which results in Mr. Grabbit being stuck in a church steeple, makes him change his ways in the end.
Old kid books are so cute-- just like us old kids, right?
Have a nice day!
