Little Golden Book Endpapers

Endpapers to Uncle Wiggily. 1953. You know you want to write your name there, don't you?

    Ward, any idea who did this iconic illo? Tibor Gergely maybe?

    On a side note... my kid sister took painting lessons in the late 70s from a painter named Mr. Gergely. He had her paint ( among other things ) Disney and kid's book characters. So I mistakenly thought for many years he might have been Tibor Gergely.

    I wish I knew, Glen! This is great stuff.

    That would've been wild if it was, indeed, THE Tibor Gergely.
  • Glen Mullaly PRO 7y

    Yeah, but seeing as he was teaching from his house in Nanaimo B.C. in the late 70s I strongly doubt it.
  • Blanca Helga PRO 7y

    That is Great!!!!!

    I remember looking at these end papers on the Golden Books and wanting to read all the stories they portrayed. I recognized the tug boat and the train. Those were boys books; I never read them.

    I especially wanted to read the book with the little black stripey kitten. Which one was that?
  • Ward Jenkins 7y

    I believe he's from "The Three Little Kittens".

    the "three little kittens" golden book is the first book i ever read by myself!

    I can see three of Tibor Gergely's characters. It's a compilation of LGB illustrators.
