Notes

First edition, first printing. Presentation copy with an original illustration of an ark in pencil on the verso of front endpaper, "For Mary for "the Old lady" Ed Emberley Ipswich Spring 1967." The recipient, Mary C. Rife, was a noted children's librarian for more than 50 years, spending her last 30 years co-ordinating Children's Library Services for the Kalamazoo Public Library."She was passionate about the needs of children and worked all her life to help children appreciate literature, through book selection, children's services and outreach. Mary touched many lives through storytelling and was the ultimate "Mother Goose." Many children's authors and illustrators were encouraged and supported by her efforts. She was instrumental in bringing many of them to Kalamazoo during annual fall National Children's Book Week celebrations over the last 30 years." ( Obituary 2010) This title was a Caldecott Honor title for 1967. A wonderful association copy with an original drawing by a Caldecott Award winning illustrator.
