One of Oliver’s absolute favorite books is Scuffy the Tugboat, a children’s book written by Gertrude Crampton and illustrated by Tibor Gergely. This morning he asked his Nonna to help him make a real life “Scuffy boat”, (see below). Painted these incredibly delicious blend of colors by my lil artiste I just couldn’t resist drawing it (on one of his drawings of course). … Wait?? is that a bunny sighting? Can’t wait to see what the morning brings. – Michele
Scuffy the Tugboat was first published in 1946 as part of the Little Golden Books series. Scuffy is a toy tugboat who wishes for “bigger things” than sailing in the bathtub. The Man with the Polkadot Tie (who owns a toy store) and his son take Scuffy to a small brook in a pasture, and soon the current carries him away on an adventure of a lifetime.
