Welcome again to Lil' Vintage Story Books, where we share our favorite vintage children's books!
I found today's book out thrifting this week, and all I can say is, "How have I not seen this book before?" It's called "The Animal Fair", by Alice and Martin Provensen (no illustrator listed), and published originally in 1952. I have a reprint here- I wasn't lucky enough to find a vintage copy.
This book has got the cutest illustrations throughout!
It's a long book (60 pages), and is broken into smaller stories and poems about animals.
Everything is just so whimsical and fun!
I love these guys on the left page.
This poor tiger- nobody wants to come to his party!
I absolutely love this spread! No story, no poem, just an illustration of birds flying south in the Fall.
This bear is prepared! Notice how his clock is labeled for the seasons!
Even the end pages are lovely! Oh, those little buildings and that fox- swoon!
