Collecting Pipes in Children's Literature
In another blog post, I mentioned that some things seem to pop up over and over again in children's books. Since writing about the red balloons, I've noticed more! It also appears that pipes like to make an appearance in kid's books as well. Here are some of the best pipes I've collected in the past few weeks as Oscar and I read together. Am I missing any? Have you noticed any reoccurring things popping up in illustrations?
