This golden book was hardly opened, and is in ''like new'' condition. It is the first printing - 1949. It states that this ''is the first book Richard Scarry has illustrated. After graduating from the Boston Museum School he did magazine art. During WWII he was an art director in the army.'' (See photo)The authors are Margaret Wise Brown and Edith Thacher Hurd. The illustrations are mostly in black and white, but there are color pages as well. The illustrations are gorgeous! This is such a special book, and I must not have opened it to read hardly at all. It is the usual golden book size - 6 1/2 by about 8 inches.
A MUST HAVE for that lover of great children's books in your life!
