Cool Retro Picture Books

Thanks to Daughter Number Three, I wandered over to Curious Pages, a blog by illustrators Lane Smith and Bob Shea that's devoted to older picture books. Lots of fun.


  1. I'm pretty sure I had the Old Woman Who Swallowed the Fly book!

  2. What a riot! Books you can only find at a rummage sale. And only if you look really hard.

  3. And the puppet sailor book reminds me of a brilliant line Miss Betsy Thomas made up for that most inappropriate of children's songs "What Do You Do with a Drunken Sailor?" Why of course you "leave him alone and go tell a grownup!"
