Smokin' Hot Daddies

Grandpa and me, circa 1967.

Back in the old days, smoking was not a crime. Heck, people even smoked in front of their kids! Here are some smokin' hot dads from my home picture book collection:

Littledale, Harold. Alexander. New York: Parents' Magazine Press, 1964.

Andersen, H. C., Rose Dobbs, and Gustav Hjortlund. Andersen's Fairy Tales.
New York: Random House, 1958.

Burton, Virginia Lee. Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel. Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1939.

Brown, Margaret Wise, and Leonard Weisgard. The Quiet Noisy Book. New York:Harper & Row,1950.

Kent, Jack. Just Only John. New York: Parents' Magazine Press, 1968.

Smokers are also featured in Babar's Voyage, Le Petit Nicolas, and Curious George, but I left those books at the library. Can you think of any others?
