Snipp, Snapp, and Snurr were three little boys who lived in Sweden. They had blue eyes and yellow hair, and they looked very much alike. One day, Snipp, Snapp, an Snurr decided to buy their mother the perfect birthday present--a pair of red shoes. So they set out to earn some money. Snipp painted a fence. Snapp cleaned a shimney. Snurr worked in a flour mill. Things did not go exactly as planned, but in the end, Mother was very surprised! Originally published in the United States in 1932, this was the first book in a series of treasured books created by Swedish author-artist Maj Lindman. Paperback.
