with text edited and adapted by Katharine Gibson.
Boston: Little Brown and Company, 1942.
Look at this beauty! This stunner came from the "In Storage" section of our downtown public library. It wasn't even on the shelf! I placed a hold on it, and it arrived at my usual branch today. Giddy doesn't even begin to describe how I feel.
Gustaf Tenggren is best-known today for two things: being an illustrator with Disney during the '30s and '40s, and illustrating many classic Little Golden Books, including the best-selling hardcover children's book in English, The Poky Little Puppy. (You can explore the art and life of Tenggren at this wonderful website.) I had seen used copies of this book on various used book sites before, but copies usually start over the $20 mark. (I'm such a bargain shopper.) I'll happily settle for checking out a copy from my public library, until I can luck into a better deal.
