Today's vintage children's book has a good moral about accepting others for who they are. Pepito's Story has some really nice illustrations and is richly imbued with bright colors. Don't forget to click on the pictures.
Pepito's Story was written and illustrated by Eugene Fern (1920-1987). I was not able to find much about Fern other than he was an artist, writer, professor of art and illustrator of children’s books. Fern wrote and illustrated a number of children’s books.
What a wonderful sentiment and so true!
