Flickr Friday: I’m Alvin

The examination of kiddie books from my youth continues with these scans from I’m Alvin, the story of a baby squirrel who is fished out of a river and nursed back to health. It seems weird that my mom decided to get us this book, since squirrels were nowhere to be found in Scottsdale, Arizona where I grew up. Published in 1967, the book was written and illustrated by one Elizabeth Rice. Our copy was very well-used, as you can see:

Although this book isn’t the greatest example of ’60s illustration style, it is pretty funny for the “annotations” I made in it. Apparently I decided that Alvin the squirrel needed some dialogue:

I couldn’t spell right (gimme a break, I was only 4 or 5), and had some trouble drawing normal looking cartoon dialogue balloons:

In the book, Alvin ventures out into the forest and meets all sorts of woodland animals. Saying “hi” to each and every one of them, of course!
