Petunia by Roger Duvoisin

By Carter.

Petunia is fairly new to me, but it was love at first sight. I’ve never met a sweeter goose. It was originally published in 1950 by Roger Duvoisin, and has a timelessness that is so endearing.

She’s a bit sassy, a bit bossy, but has a lot of heart. She means well, but now that she has found A Book, she thinks she has all of the wisdom in the world. The farm explodes (quite literally) with mayhem and mishaps, and Petunia realizes that perhaps wisdom comes from reading the actual pages.

Do you have any other favorites that spread such classic charm?
