Decie Merwin’s Illustrations for Happy Little Family
I found this copy of Happy Little Family at an antique store in Spokane. It was published in 1947, the first book in the Fairchild Family series by Rebecca Caudill. I bought it because I loved the illustrations by Decie Merwin.
The story is charming, too. It’s about how Bonnie, the youngest child in the family, yearns to do the things her older siblings can do. Here are some of the pictures.
