The Provensens

When I posted recently about my Memory Game, I mentioned that I thought I recognized some of the images on the cards as perhaps being from one of my childhood books. Well, I got to digging around, and guess what I found? See the rabbit card? There he is on the cover of this book:
I had written in another post back in 2007 that this book was among my favorites. I even did two other posts where I featured one of the great illustrations in each. I also found the fox from the Memory card!
And the little king:
I completely adore the illustrations of Alice and Martin Provensen - they are so unique and so wonderful.

You have made a fantastic, exciting discovery. I have always loved that copy of A Child's Garden of Verses! I wish I had all my old books available because you have made me want to look through them and enjoy them again. Love T

That is a fantastic book! I've never seen it, but if I ever do, I'll grab it! I adore children's book illustrations, especially in this style.
