|The Valiant Little Tailor (A Bonnie Book), illustrated by Dolli Tingle.|
John Martin's House, 1946.
This is a charming little book we found at an antique store recently. Bonnie Books were another inexpensive book series, similar in price point to Little Golden Books. It is a retelling of "The Brave Little Tailor" by the Brothers Grimm, illustrated by Dolli Tingle, an illustrator who once designed postage stamps. I love the folksy illustrations and the way they are incorporated into the text. This copy is in pretty good shape for its age, too.
