First edition, first printing. The distinguished illustrator’s third book and a Caldecott Honor winner; Marcia Brown won the Caldecott Medal itself on three separate occasions. “As an author-illustrator of remarkable versatility and vision, Brown has throughout her career created works of visual beauty and innate perception. Crafted with care and precision, her books produce a sense of joy and wonderment of exceptional and enduring quality” (Cullinan & Pearson eds., The Continuum Encyclopaedia of Children’s Literature, 2001, p. 121).

Oblong octavo. Original pale oatmeal-coloured cloth, spine and front cover lettered in dark brown, pictorial endpapers. With the dust jacket. Colour illustrations throughout. Discreet library stamp of Mary Fox Mack on front free endpaper. Spine and edge of back panel of price-clipped jacket lightly sunned, a few small closed-tears or nicks. An excellent copy.
