Thrift Shop Find


Way before there was Grumpy Cat there was Omar-the Discontented Cat.  I found this cute little book at the thrift shop and thought it was funny.  But when I picked it and flipped through it I had to have it because of the sweet little illustrations.
Very discontented

The copyright is 1925 so it has that very Victorian look of children's illustrations that were popular in the 20s and 30s.  The illustrator is Katherine Sturgis.
Please to meet you Jenny and Jack.

So looking up Katherine Sturgis on the internet, I found a lot of gorgeous children's illustrations.  But I did stumble on this hilarious gem that she illustrated.
