Two days ago I heard some music on Swedish radio that reminded me of Jaques Offenbach's opera La Perichole (1868). A part of the opera was used as the theme for a program called "To France with Music", hosted by Jaques Frei (1950's, Philadelphia).
The musical theme often coincided with my mother reading "Ukelele and her new doll". which was a favorite of mine. The music and the story have lived in my mind, stuck together, ever since.
The story was published in the Little Golden Book series in 1951.
Does any one of you have the book? I'd like to purchase it, or scan it. If you have it and don't want to part with it, I'd be very happy to receive a scan of it.

I have nothing of mine of the 1950's except a windup alarm clock.
seems like I recall hearing of the books.
great to see you post. been a while or I have been missing them
I had a bunch of Golden Books when I was a wee kid, but I don't remember ever seeing this one. I googled it, and found one on Amazon - for 79.99. Must be one of those collector's items...
I too miss your fun photos and artwork, Michael! Summer said to give you and the Big guy a hug!
