The War of the Wooden Soldiers

IMG_0492Old children’s books hold such fascination for me. Mostly it is the illustrations, so pure in their execution, so honest in their depictions. I wonder about the artists. This one caught my eye so I snagged it from a pile to be sold at an estate sale. What a little treasure.

The War of the Wooden Soldiers by F.M.H. (not sure what that means)
Illustrated by M.L. and W.C. Wheeler
1933 edition

I like to research the illustrators, but was unable to find much on these two other than they have illustrated another book called The House that Jack Built.
