This is a lively little adventure book that is sure to delight children of any age! Published in 1928, it is the story of an elephant child who lives in the jungle and eats bananas with Wiggly Tail the monkey. He is always trying new methods to try to avoid Old Sharptooth the bad tiger who wants to make a dinner out of poor little Slam Bang. Written by Helen Van Derveer, this book is a First Edition. As for condition it is in very nice shape for the age of this fine old book. There are a few areas of wear on the paper cover of the spine, however the spine is nice and tight. There are 38 pages and none have scribbles or tears. There are a few "smudges" perhaps from a thumb as a person would have held the book while reading it. 7 1/2" x 5 3/4".
