Question: hard bound large blue cover book of children's stories and poems

Home » Children's Books » #20982

Asked by krisc0527 on Fri 24, Feb 2017 10:40am :
In late 60's I had a large hard bound blue book that contained many
children's stories and poems and some color illustrations. One poem was
Halfway Down by A. A. Milne, others were; Wynken Blyken and Nod by Eugene
Field, Animal Crackers by Christopher Morley. I don't know anything more
about the book, publisher, anything. No bookstore I have been to knows
anything about it, either. I would dearly love to find this book again.

Perhaps Grosset and Dunlap's Illustrated Treasury of Children's
Literature? This book has been republished many times throughout the
years but at least some of its early versions were blue. You can do a
google search and look for images- then you could see if one of the
versions looks familiar to you or not. I know at least some of the
versions contain all three poems you mentioned plus stories and
pictures. You have to be careful with anthologies like this, though,
because the content often changes over the years.
