Big Little Fat Books

I absolutely adore the illustrations in these little books.  They belonged to my children when they were young.  Then my grandchildren enjoy them.


They are 'My Big Little Fat Books'  by Brimax and published in 1985.  The illustrator was Ann Ricketts.



They were great to read with the children because they were so simple and the illustrations so cute.


Now they live with some of the toys in the Lego Room - my grandsons' favourite place when they visit.


Disclaimer:  I hope no books have taken offence to any of the words used in this post.  Big, Fat and Little are all used in the books' titles and were not meant in a derogatory way!  Phew!


Love, Liz

How sweet are those books! Being from 1985 they might even be considered vintage, I suppose. It's lovely that you still have them so that your grandchildren could enjoy them as well. xxx

Yes indeed, these days one has to be careful what one says, doesn't one. =) Those books are sweet. Love the adorable illustrations...and it looks to me as the soft toys like them too.

The oldies are sometimes the best. My granddaughter is enjoying playing the card game 'Donkey' that her mum used to play.

Some children books artists are really talented. Those you show are so cute; unfortunately children grow fast and then their interests change.
