Hump Day

To brighten up your Wednesday: a baby tapir.
I have loved tapirs since I was a little girl and read "Tilly the Tapir."
I have tried to find that book, all about a tapir who is so tired
(tapirs are generally nocturnal)
she doesn't manage to do anything.
But to no avail.
I think I may have the title wrong;
is it Tilly? Tully? Tabby?
The book was very old when I had it,
probably published in the 60s.
It smelled old and delicious, like paper and glue and ink.
The spine was broken.
I hope to find a copy of it for my own children.

I have plenty of time ...
