They laid out a dummy for Miki, setting up the pictures first, and then preparing the text. They had expected that the text would have to be re-written by an author of children’s books, but when they sent the dummy to May Massee, who had encouraged the project, they were surprised that she wanted the book just as they had written it.

Carl Sandburg is beloved by generations of children for his Rootabaga Stories and Rootabaga Pigeons (which is not in the public domain), a series of whimsical, sometimes melancholy stories he originally created for his own daughters. The Rootabaga Stories were born of Sandburg’s desire for American fairy tales to match American childhood. He felt that the European stories involving royalty and knights were inappropriate, and so populated his stories with animals, skyscrapers, trains, corn fairies, and other colorful characters

I grew up in the Mid West, and have always loved the prairie. Sadly it is the most endangered habitat in the world, and well over 99% destroyed. Sandberg's stories of the Rutabaga country and the land of liver and onions really captures what the true feeling of this strange and lost world that was the prairie country. I long to be with Dippy the Wisp as she runs across the prairies and listens to stories told by Hatrack the Horse and the potato face blind man. I long to go to the train station so early in the morning and empty out my rag bag of all my spot cash money and buy a long slick yellow leather slab ticket with a blue spanch across it. I long to ride the train until the train runs out of tracks, and then forty ways further.

Read this book to your children. Look up Sandberg reading this on youtube, and try to mimic his accent. Read this book to your children and make it part of their heritage. Read this book to your children and years later they will thank you for it. They may suffer when they speak in class of "Wednesday evening between the twilight and the gloaming" and nobody realizes that they are talking about a pigeon, or when they comment to a friend that they will never "sit with the sitters or knit with the knitters". Read this book to your children. They will grow up to be better people because you did.

I read a story from this book or its sequel almost every night to my child. The original book was lost on a trip and this purchase replaced it. The stories are wonderful and well written. I like Carl Sandburg and I am used to the cadence of his writing; which may be a little challenging at first. (but worth the effort!)
