The Happy Forest

 Oh my goodness how beautiful are these 1968 illustrations by Susan Aspey?!  All pastel blues and pinks and browns.  The stories about the animal characters take place in the Happy Forest, a place where "you just can't help feeling happy while you are there."  There's Tommy the Toad with his pipe, and Chatter the Squirrel who can't seem to keep a secret, and Billie the Beaver who has no inclination to be busy.  Each story even comes with a song!
