Notes

First edition, first printing. From the legendary editor, Margaret K. McElderry collection, with a pencil note on front flap in her hand "M. K. McE. for his Majesty H.L.R." McElderry was known as the "grande dame of children's publishing." She became the first publisher to have titles win the Caldecott and Newbery Awards in the same year. Mr. Popper's Penguins is a Newbery Honour title, and the basis for the 2011 film starring Jim Carrey.
