V. Suteyev-Stories and Pictures

My Wife found this book, it’s a cool children’s book that’s printed in English but published in Russia from 1963. I couldn’t find anything on the author/illustrator V. Suteyev. When I googled his name it came up with “Did you mean V.Suteev” who is also a children’s author, I don’t know if it’s the same guy. When I was a kid my two favorite books were Danny and the Dinosaur and Ant & Bee. [click on image to enlarge]

The following is “The Cross Cat” a story from the book

      Yeah, it’s not like the internet isn’t already full of kitteh pics and videos already.

      It was bad enough that Tim was trying to pass off a picture of an old Russian woman as his dog, now he’s got kitteh fever.

    Hey! Bit of info from a Russian speaker – it’s the same guy. I checked him out on Russian Wikipedia. His full name is Vladimir Grigorevich Suteev, he was alive 1903-1993, and wrote and illustrated children’s books as well as directing animations.

    Here’s a link to one of his cartoons: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yaea1-saIsI

    If you want to know anything more specific, let me know and I’ll give it a Google in Russian!

      I absolutely loved his stories when I was little, read them millions of times in Hungarian. Do you know if any more of his books are published in English? I have just been searching for them online but it’s a bit hard without knowing the English titles.
