(1946) · Philadelphia
A book that is genuinely important, not only because it presents one of the most important most beloved illustrators of children's books of all time, but because it is the first time his story has been told for children."
Â Â Â Â Mary Gould Davis (1882â€“1956) was a longtime librarian at the New York Public Library and a writer of children's books. Publisher's tan cloth with brown lettering on spine and front board. In original pictorial dust jacket; age-toned and lightly dust-soiled, some very mild chipping to extremities. Interior age-toned, some very light foxing mostly to half-title. A sweet appreciation.
