Books & Zines VII : I Know An Old Lady

This book fascinated me in early primary school I remember seeking it out of the shelves of the library multiple times. My vivid imagination thought the animals depicted inside her were very real and I enjoyed seeing them wiggle about until she got to the horse... the horror! It wasn't until a couple of years ago I thought to seek it out again and to my delight the illustrations by Abner Graboff were more timeless and playful than ever. I love that the lace of her dress is made from a doily.

I Know An Old Lady, written by Rose Bonne with illustrations by Abner Graboff.

This edition is published by Scholastic Book Services, a division of Scholastic Inc. 1961
