Why Tulip Does Not Catch birds (in Russian)

Charushin was a master at creating animal drawings, full of character, so appealing, yet not "cute". If you like kittens it matters not at all that you don't speak Russian. You'll be able to see just how Tulip feels about birds!



22022 Katt-Resan Bilderbook 1955/1909, pb

Katt-Resan Bilderbok.

A funny little girl sits astride her cat with a driving whip (which she doesn't use on the cat) as they go off on adventures. A very modern seeming book written for the author's little girl in 1909. Minimal text. Lots of white space. A little classic.

This 1955 paperback copy very tight. The pictures of the interior illustrations are taken from our  hardcover 1923/1909 copy. The pictures are exactly the same size but the older pictures have a more nuanced, less orange, cast.

This is the second of her two children's books; the first, Brieven aan Bernard (or Letters to Bernard), 1964, is advertized on the back inside cover. This little book, though the size of a young child's novel, is filled with handlettered text and delightful watercolour sketches of Arabella, who comes down from Heaven to comfort her small mistress.
