Jan Wahl: Pleasant Fieldmouse illustrated by Maurice Sendak

Thus he got ready and tied up the sandwiches in neat parcels with ribbons of grass. Then all of a sudden he knew he had left our something and went hurrying from poster to poster, scrawling under the bottom line, in yellow-coloured letters - since no other kind of paint was left - TUESDAY, although the manner in which he spelled it was TOOZDAY.

Pleasant Fieldmouse Pg. 13

    Hi Megan
    It is beautiful! Thanks for calling in, Barbara.

  3. Just too darling. I love the part where he ties the parcels with ribbons of grass; not blades of grass - ribbons of grass.

    Yes I loved that too – ribbons of grass sounds so much more poetic than blades of grass.
