Mother Loves You! Now Get Out!

Illustration:  Mother.  The Story of The Three Little Pigs.  McLoughlin Bro’s: New York. Ca 1900.

Once upon a time there was an old pig, with three little pigs, and as she had not enough to keep them, she sent them out to seek their fortunes.

  1. Once again, I love the restricted color scheme of this ilustration.

    It seems so often in these stories the children must go out and seek their fortunes. Of course, because staying home with Mom is not that interesting compared to the adventures they always have!

    1. All my comments have disappeared today! So if this is a repeat sorry. It occurs to me that the limited color scheme is a bit like the blue glaze on the brown clay (post you did a month or two ago). Very pleasing and somehow similar to this illustration in my mind.

      Big adventures ahead for the three little pigs – eat or be eaten!
