Additional Details

Published in the June 10, 1944 issue of The Saturday Evening Post, illustrating a story by R. Ross Annett. "Amos Sewell had a special empathy for children and also particularly enjoyed depicting homespun, rural subjects. These special gifts were ideally combined in the illustration he made for a series of stories about Babe, Little Joe, Big Joe, and Uncle Pete by R. Ross Annett that ran for over twenty years in The Saturday Evening Post"--Reed, The Illustrator in America, page 294).
