22543 The Adventures of Benjamin Pink by Garth Williams

The Adventures of Benjamin Pink

From the 1951 Kirkus review: "This fanciful tale about a small, gentlemanly rabbit and his sea-voyage adventures ambles along, somewhat sleepily at times, but the animal characters encountered on the way are enchanting creations. It was a wonderful day for Mr. Pink when, after being shipwrecked on an island, he finds a chest full of treasure. In spite of the warnings of an amused old turtle, Benjamin is determined to bring back his treasure to his village and do Good Works."

Though Garth Williams illustrated innumerable books, some of them modern classics, he wrote only this one full length tale. Wonderful illustrations, too tight to scan them fully.

18924 The Bunnikins-Bunnies and the Moon King by Davidson.

The Bunnikins-Bunnies and the Moon King.

With a cheerful disregard for astronomy, the Bunnikin-Bunnies take the entire family on a trip to the Moon via the Milky Way. The "airship" looks very much like a boat with a cabin. An early science fiction book for little ones, you might say. Fun!
