If I Was a Kid in 1921

Boy, if I was a kid in 1921, this cover would make my heart go pitty-pat. What am I saying — it makes my heart go pitty-pat now!

Maud & Miska Petersham — St. Nicholas magazine — October 1921

The Petershams were a wife/husband art team and illustrated a LOT of books and periodicals from the 1920s into the 1950s.
