Thanks for showing a whole side of Garth Williams' work that I had never seen before! I love his illustrations for Charlotte's Web and the Laura Ingalls Wilder books. Here's a blog that has more info about the Tiny Golden Books: http://disdressed.blogspot.com/2006/03/tiny-golden-books.html

Love the duck at the water fountain. I find these images so attractive and love buying these vintage Golden Books for my little girl!

Funny that you posted this when I just unearthed a couple of these books from my own childhood. They have the other end paper which is a jungle scene that I find equally compelling. One of my Little Golden Books is "The Little Fur Family." It was my dad's when he was a boy and it came with a real rabbit fur cover. It was a much loved little book that I am so glad to now share with my kids.
