This favourite childrens book

This is a childhood book I've managed to keep in my travels and still look at all the time because of the great illustrations. I also laugh every time I read the bad joke I wrote on the inner page when I was a kid:

If we painted every car in Australia pink would would we be?
A Pink Carnation.

Thanks to Potty Mouth Mamma, for this weeks theme and Three Buttons for hosting the game. xxxx

I absolutely love illustrations from the 70's too...they were always so happy and vibrant.
The book is beautiful.
