I read this book over and over again as a child. For some reason this story just popped into my head and I had to "Google it" because I couldn't remember the title of it. I knew it immediately as soon as I saw the cover art. I used to spend hours studying the illustrations because they were so detailed and fun and the story, if I remember correctly, was kind of bizarre. I'll have to see if I can find a copy of this one again to refresh my memory. ( )

Cute tale with fanciful drawings. I can't help noticing how beautifully shaded the orange screening is over the b&w drawings.
