Fortunately Unfortunately

This slim kids book, published in 1964, by Remy Chartlip is short on substance but big on fun for little kids.

It is a simple story of a kid in which on alternating pages good and bad things happen to him.

The fortunately pages are in color, and the unfortunately pages are in black and white.

The pictures are as simple as the storyline.

Our kids enjoy it, and have created their own Fortunately / Unfortunately stories while on car trips.
