I love vintage books and I don't stumble across really nice ones too often. My daughter's grandmother produced this beauty on the weekend and had me in raptures. Take a look at a few of the illustrations and I'm sure you'll agree it is a lovely book:
Pookie by Ivy L.Wallace - Cover
Pookie by Ivy L.Wallace - Back Spread
Ivy L. Wallace created a series of Pookie books, and judging by what I saw on Amazon they are quite collectable. This book was first published in 1947 if I remember correctly. Read more about Ivy Wallace at Wikipedia.
