This Thumbprint

by Ruth Krauss, 1967

Ruth Krauss, the gift that keeps giving. We just love her here at Curious Pages.

This could have been called How To Torture This Thumbprint.

This Thumbprint fell in the lake . . . where a catfish drew graffiti on its torso.

. . . when someone came along and threw a pie in his face. Yes, a big fat spider pie.
This Thumbprint found a poo.

WHAT DOES THIS BOOK TEACH? One needn't go to art school if one has a thumb and some ink.
