Publisher: Oxford University Press, New York, NY
Publication Date: 1954
Dust Jacket Condition: Dust Jacket Included
Edition: First Edition, unstated.
Good: Shows significant indications of use: the main flaw is a fairly strong musty odor; otherwise, there is a small finger smudge on one of the pages; faint discoloration and some wear at the heel of the backstrip; the binding shows heavy lean; light wear to the extremities; faint soiling and mild rubbing to the read cloth over boards. The binding remains secure; the text is clean. A flawed copy, but remains a sturdy reading copy with a clean text. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 4to. Words and Pictures by Lois Lenski. Music by Clyde Robert Bulla. Decorated endpapers. Red cloth binding with black illustrations of Mr. Small in all of his activities. Black lettering on cover and spine. First Edition, unstated [Oxford has used several methods of designating first editions, one of which is same date on title page and copyright page, which is the case here]. Hardback: Lacks DJ. A joyful book of songs, illustrated in colour throughout by the truly inimitable Lois Lenski. Lois Lenski (1893 – 1974) was a popular and prolific writer of children's and young adult fiction. One of her projects was a collection of regional novels about children across the United States. The series includes her most famous work, Strawberry Girl, about a girl in Florida; Blue Ridge Billy, about a North Carolina youth living in rural Appalachia; Bayou Suzette, etc. She won the annual Newbery Medal for Strawberry Girl in 1946. In 1929, Lenski and her husband, Covey, moved their family to Harwinton, Connecticut, to a farm built in 1790, called Greenacres, several months after the birth of their son, Stephen. Inspired by Stephen’s childhood years, Lenski commenced to work on what would become the beloved "Mr. Small" series, beginning with The Little Auto (1934). Mr. Small was a versatile as well as charming hero for Lenski and her readers; he sailed a boat, piloted an airplane, farmed, and kept the peace, in Policeman Small (1962), among other adventures.
