@john My favorite was Bill Peet's The Caboose Who Got Loose. I wish I had bought more of his books when my own kids were younger. It has been fun discovering his influence in old Disney films, like Dumbo.
@manton On another note, I replied to your post on my blog and sent a webmention to micro.blog, with this post's micro.blog URL as the target, but it doesn't seem to have been threaded. Any idea what I did wrong?
