A favorite from childhood

An image from Walter the Lazy Mouse, by Marjorie Flack, brought to you by the Internet. I got to thinking about this book the other day and wondered if I could find any trace of it on the ‘net.  It was one of the favorite, read-over-and-over, pore-over-the-illustration, books from my childhood. We were poor and didn’t have a lot of toys, but my parents and other relatives would buy us nice books.

About katiekind

Enjoying the second half of life. I have three sons who are the apples of my eye and a wonderful husband of 35 years--those are the important things. Long ago, out of the blue, I became a Christian. It was something I never planned on, but what joy it has been. I do website development and I like to read and garden and paint and I love beauty and truth.

    I adored that book.

    Did you really? I’m so glad–you must have had my old copy. I remember being a little freaked out that Walter’s family could forget about him, but at the same time I was just fascinated by his new life with the frogs. Percy, Leander and….who?

    Oh my gosh! Lulu! (That’s funny, given our current dog and angst about her goofy name.) Yes! Thank you!

  4. I still have my copy somewhere. <3
