by Pat Hutchins/ published 1977 by The Macmillan Company
This is fairly famous book from the seventies, still in print I believe with Simon & Schuster. I had this one when I was wee and it still confounds me as much today as it did back then. It's a story in pictures of two little wooden doll type figures who set forth a series of events and objects using colorful wooden blocks. There is a bizarre fire and a flood, but if ever a book was forged out of the imagination, this would be it.
Her books have a look that is pretty iconic of that time period, making them super retro finds if you can get hold of some vintage copies. This one is in library binding, stamped 1979 for purchase by the librarian.
