Bunny's Nutshell Library
Robert Kraus ~ Harper, 1963
No update this week, but I wanted to end it with some sweet thoughts and images from one of the books in Bunny's Nutshell Library, the four volume set which also includes Springfellow's Parade, Juniper and The First Robin. I've never seen the other books or the whole thing together as a set so I can't atest for the ultimate cuteness of the lot, but I do know this...
It was a perfect day for dandelion picking, except dandelions were very hard to find and everyone was looking for them. Roger finally found a dandelion, but Martha Ant scurried in front of him and picked it. "Age before everything," she said, and scurried home to make herself a cup of dandelion tea.
Here's a flickr set with all the covers and the box. Will someone please put all these little nutshells back into print? I'm begging!
