The Happy Little Handsaw

I just love vintage children's books.  The illustrations seem to be so stylized and fun, and the stories reflect their time.  Here is one of my favorites, about a unHappy Little Handsaw, who just can't quite fit in...  These spreads are just some of my favorite illustrations from the book, read the whole story here.

The Happy Little Handsaw
illustrated by Milli Eaton
written by Robert E. Mahaffay
copyright 1955

I especially like the woodgrain, all of the lumberjack's shirts, the happy little creatures, and all of the different types of saws.
