this book was very thin and small, like 3" x 4". about a man with a big hill by the house that they decided to take down, but then regretted and put it back. there were pigs named oink, oink-oink, and oink-oink-oink. just adorable! if anyone knows the author or publisher or has a copy willing to sell, let me know!

I am looking for this book as well. Our house was broken into recently and can you believe someone stole this beloved childhood book of my husband? We are heartbroken. I would love to surprise him with a copy of this book.

I have a copy of this book from my childhood. It is called Mr. McMilikin's Mountain. It is a Whitman Tiny-Tot Taale. Mine was published in 1969. Hope this information helps. I had not really thought of selling mine but I feel bad that yours was stolen. If you can not find another one then let me know and maybe we can make a deal. My e-mail is

I found a copy online and purchased it earlier this year. It's now in my safety deposit box after reading it to my daughter (finally!).

It's currently showing for sale here: and even from dealers on Amazon here: Mr. McMilikin's Mountain
