Bony Legs

We are supposed to bring our favorite children's book to class next work for "Children's Literature." This class becomes very nostalgic. I haven't thought about this in a long time but I used to always take the same book from the library for a long time. It was called "Bony Legs".
I loved this book. I read it over and over again. No other story was ever as interesting. I remember my mom used to try and persuade me to get other things. We would scout other books in the library before I'd finally say I want "Bony Legs." I also loved "In a Dark, Dark Room and Other Scary Stories" which was also illustrated by Dirk Zimmer. 

UPDATE: Bony Legs is out of print :(  One day I will buy it from Amazon.
