Teeny Tiny Tales

Mum was clearing out her loft and found this long forgotten classic hidden amongst the books. It was a book picked up from one of Nan's endless jumble sale outings and I remember the 11 stories being a haphazard mix of Richard Scarry's excellent drawings coupled with simple tales for younger readers.
The book needed repairs but once it was ship-shape, I let Charlotte loose on it.
She instantly found a couple of favourites among the teeny tiny tales (the sad pony and fishing cat) and it's testament to Scarry's skill that the stories are timeless and still appeal to kids today.
Charlotte's best bit: Fishing cat ending up getting very wet or Sad Pony going for a ride.
Daddy's favourite bit: Farmer Junco.
