Toto's Merry Winter, by Laura E. Richards

              Little, Brown,  1905/1915

This cover design follows that of The Joyous Story of Toto, while below we see another, frequently used design which Little, Brown employed for this work as well. Amy designed covers for nine books by Richards.

This design probably first appeared on My Girls by Louisa May Alcott and was also used on Their Canoe Trip by Mary P. Wells Smith. I have recently discovered that this same image was used for a later edition of Juliana Horatia Ewing's Jackanapes, for which Sacker had done illustrations some years earlier. This is one of eight Richards covers that Sacker designed.
