Notes

First edition, first printing, presentation copy, inscribed by the illustrator on the front free endpaper, "To Ned with best wishes from Tasha Tudor", together with an original drawing by her of a small girl sat on a stool reading. The recipient was Ned Hills, who, with his sister Charlotte, owned the Dutch Inn gift shop in Mill Hall, Pennsylvania. The Hills were longtime family friends of Tudor, and their shop had her original artwork on view, occasionally hosting special exhibits and book signing events.
