This is... my favourite childrens book

Peepo, by Janet and Allan Ahlberg. I got this book when I was a baby... and it got a lot of loving. (As you can see from all the pages being held together with sticky tape!)

One of my favourite aspects of the book is the chaotic and cozy mess that their house is in!

Very nice, is that Australian? We just got a Gumnut anthology from Grandma, and X loves it (even though it's quite random and violent).

Ha ha - this was a favourite of ours, too. Interesting how everything old is new again; I saw 'Where the Wild Things Are' has just been re-released at Borders! What about a post on fave kids books?!

Oh you're so young (and I'm showing my age) - I bought Peepo for my KIDS when they were little ... it's a great book, isn't it?!

Wow - blast from the past! I had that book too! And yes, I loved that page. It seemed like the pefect pinnacle of family life. I think it's British.
