Ever since childhood, Little Golden Books have been a favourite with me. I loved "The Taxi that hurried", "Scuffy the Tugboat" and "The little red caboose", but my alltime bestest Golden Book Story was "Goodbye Tonsils". I think I particularly liked that when MaryAnne went to hospital to have her tonsils out she was pampered and doted on, and grandma bought her a big pink teddy bear!! And MaryAnne was so adorable with her little brunette bobbed haircut, I wanted to look just like her !!!
