You are My Baby Bird

I can't find a picture of this toy anywhere online, but trust me you want it.
It's a little stuffed version of the baby bird from this book:



Spotted in the Publishers Group Canada catalogue (thanks, Jennifer).

As far as I'm concerned, "You are not my mother, you are a snort!" is right up there with "They give birth astride of a grave, the light gleams an instant, then it's night once more."

We have that book! The stuffed bird fits into pockets in the book. Lots of fun. I'll take a photo of it for you later...

Oh, that's too cute. Yes, please post or send a pic.
I have ideas about a little stuffed Henry that would fit into a shirt pocket.

Ooh, a stuffed Henry would be fabulous. You HAVE to do it.

Oh, I know - it's too bad I can't sew. Have you seen those pretty, pretty dolls over at inside a black apple?

Oh, I am a HUGE Eastman fan. And that line is one of my favourites, too. But I sometimes think it's a bit of a shame he got swallowed up in the Seuss juggernaut, or he might have been more recognizable as a name, since many people see that cat in the Hat logo and assume his books really are by Dr. Seuss.

Now all we need are some really good party hats to go with Go Dog Go!

We must find this stuffed bird. And will also need many many stuffed Henries, and possibly also a few of those crows from Where You Came From.

Oh yes, I want those hats.
Which was the book with "Do you like my hat?" repeated as the hats grew ever more outrageous?
