I've been looking for the exact same book for a long time. It's definitely not a series book, like a Dr. Seuss or a Looney Tunes, though that's not a lot of help...

I am also looking for this book. I had it as a child in the mid-1950s. It is definitely not a Dr. Suess book. It was all in rhyme and spoke of all the birds that lived in a tree by the zoo in Kalamazoo.

I've been looking for that forever too.  The only thing I can remember is the line "10 happy robins were living there too"  I used to read this book to my sister in the mid 60s, I think it was.

The book is called Tweety.  It's a Whitman Tell-a-Tale Book, Western Publishing Company.  I don't have an ISBN code though.  We have an Rotary International Exchange Student with us.  I am having him read it out loud so he can practice making English word sounds.

I also have been looking for this book for years.  It was my favorite book as a child and I believe it was called Tweety and Sylvester at Kalamazoo.  It is all done in rhyme and everything ryhmes with Kalamazoo.  I can quote most of the book but key words were:

   largest oak tree grew, pink cockatoo, bulldog named Lou, Sylvester and ten cats he knew, they all lived in houses and painted them blue

I would LOVE to find this book.

It's not either of the books you suggest.  My aunt had the same book and I am looking for it too.  My aunt may still have a copy.  I'll call her and see what I can find out about it.

It is titled "Tweety" published in MCMLIII by Whitman Books.  It was in the Tell-a-Tale series.  If you found a copy please let me know where I can get one too!

My area of expertise is a particular series: The Chalet School, written by Elinor Brent-Dyer between the 1920s and the 1960s. I can probably find out the answers to most question about 'Girls' Own' literature as well.


My book, Peace Comes to the Chalet School was published in November 2005.
