Mother, Mother, I am sick
Call for the Doctor quick quick quick!
When tiny toys of all kinds cry, Doctor Squash comes running! Always ready to mend and soothe, to pat and prescribe, Doctor Squash helps each doll stay "fit as a fiddle and right as rain." And when the good doctor himself falls ill, you can be sure there will be a crackerjack team of dolls-turned-doctors ready to rush to his aid!
Beautifully reillustrated by David Hitch, this whimsical Golden Book from the 1950s will enchant a new generation.
Margaret Wise Brown, perhaps best known as the author of GOODNIGHT MOON (Harper), wrote countless children's books inspired by her belief that the very young could be fascinated by the simple pleasures of the world around them. She wrote several bestselling Little Golden Books including MISTER DOG, SAILOR DOG, and THE COLOR KITTENS.
David Hitch has illustrated children's books in the US and in England. His work has also appeared in the New Yorker.
