About this Item

SIGNED BY AUTHORS. First Ed; First Printing indicated. Very Good: shows very light wear to extremities; mild rubbing to its lamination; mildly bumped at the head of the baslight spine lean; faint soiling; a small crack in the lamination and underlying paper about an inch and a half from the bottom along the front hinge; former owner's gift inscription at the half-title page. Binding secure; text clean. Despite these minor flaws, remains clean, sturdy, and quite presentable. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. Large Format 4to. Unpaginated [about 32pp.]. Hardcover: Pictorial Laminate Boards. The story is an old one, but this book is highly original. Don Wood's illustrations add a distinct and engaging personality to each of the ten piggies. My 16 month old son loves the goofy faces and elaborate visuals that show basic ideas: tall, wee, hot, cold, clean, dirty, good. I love the clever character twists on each gorgeous page. The subtle and silly sub-texts allow adults to enjoy the book too! SIGNED BY AUTHORS. Bookseller Inventory # 42140
