Illustrations By Charlotte Stone

I recently acquired two wonderful books from the early 1930's. The books are in poor condition, but the illustrations within, by Charlotte Stone, are spectacular!
Jack and Jill:
Bye Baby Bunting:

Curly Locks:

Jack Be Nimble:

Simple Simon:

Jack And The Beanstalk:

Little Red Riding Hood:

The colors are so vivid and bright, and the illustrations are simply delightful in every way.
I absolutely love them.
