Searching for a Children’s book from about late 40s early 50s. A pen and ink drawing shows a child (girl I think) sitting in front of a cabin in the mountains (Alps?) holding a black cat. I believe the dust cover was white with black lettering.
I am looking for information on a children's book about a group of men on a journey through a mountain, each with a special tool or power needed on the journey like a hammer and lantern.
This was a book for younger children that I borrowed repeatedly from the library in the early 1970's in the UK. All I can remember are the first few lines:
“It wasn’t a cold day. It wasn’t a hot day. It was a day just right for climbing a mountain.”
I know it was a picture book, but I have no more idea about what happened in the story.
I’d love to track it down if possible.
Title: The Mountaineers – A children’s book from the 40’s
I am not sure that this is the correct title, as I have been unable to find it though any searches. However, the book had a wonderful illustration on the cover of a number of children and a large dog climbing a mountain or hill.
I don’t remember much about their adventures, but the book was re-printed in the 70’s with the same cover illustration.
