I just saw this gorgeous little book on Etsy
, 'The Indoor Noisy Book' written by Margaret Wise Brown in 1942 and illustrated by Leonard Weisgard.
It's a story about a dog called Muffin that has to stay in all day with a cold and hears all kinds of strange noises. The illustrations are fabulous - detailed, yet bold and bright and there's even a bit of beautiful, big typography!
There are also some copies here
and a re-printed edition available here
from 1994.Images from WhimseyHouse.
