Book 379: Tom Thumb, A Living Story Book

Tom Thumb, A Living Story Book, Crown Publishing, 1967

When I was a child, I used to have a few of these Living Story Books -- not Tom Thumb, but others.  Recently, I was trying to find some of the books I had when I was a child, and my six-year-old son was looking over my shoulder.  He decided he needed Tom Thumb.  Since he is sometimes "Tom" at school, I couldn't argue with him.

Tom Thumb was done just as well as the ones I remembered, including The Golden Goose, which I recently replaced.  The story was well told, and the illustrations should appeal to anyone who grew up with Rankin/Bass Christmas specials, like Rudolph and The Little Drummer Boy.  They are right on par with those.
