Co-Co the Caravan

Co-Co the Caravan

Co-Co and friends

In 1956, Ladybird Books published Tootles the Taxi and Other Rhymes, a sweet little collection of verse about vehicles–including Co-Co the Caravan (seen here turning in for the night).

Co-Co was joined by characters such as Larry the Lorry, Stumbles the Steam-Roller, Monty the Motor Coach, Oompus the Omnibus, Cuthbert the Coal Cart, and others (who doesn’t love the British and their fancy names for everything?). Thanks to Pinterest, I know about this book and these delightful characters.
