Lil' Vintage Story Books #4

Welcome again to Lil' Vintage Story Books, where we share our favorite vintage children's books!

 Today I'd like to share "Morning Noises", written and illustrated by Alain Gree, copyright 1962.  The story is sweet, all about the noises you hear while going about your morning, and I absolutely love the illustrations!  Such gorgeous colors and details!

Gotta love  boy who can wear lavendar-striped jammies!

 I just adore this drawing of the town!  Love all the scrollwork details!

 Wouldn't it be fun if these were really the colors of firetrucks and firemen's uniforms?

 I think this illustration of all the cars would make such a cute print in a boy's room!

This is the last page of the book.  I've always been tempted to take it out and frame it- it's so wonderful!

Thanks for stopping by! If you'd like to join in, grab a button to the right and link up below!

What fun illustrations. The colors are just splendid and definitely frame-worthy.

I'm not linking a book this week (I decided to honor my father on Veterans day) but I have big plans for next week. I can't wait to see what others post. Happy Friday!

Oh I love Alain Gree! I always have a little french pop tune playing in my head when I see his work. I haven't seen this one before - it's fabulous.

I am up late tonight so I get in one time with my book - yay!

Love this! The purples/pinks look so lovely with the oranges.

I have taken part this week :) I think this is such a fun idea. I hope I have done everything correct, I am very new to this all.
What a great book! I love the colourful illustrations.. the lovely village houses and the little alarm clock on the cover is cute. I can see why you would be tempted to frame some of them :)
