Copyrighted in 1953 by McLoughlin Bros., this children's pop up book tells the story of Old King Cole. The pop up is on a heavy board and when the front "title panel" is opened, a delightful pop up of the story is revealed. The book probably originally had children's handkerchiefs for each day of the week but only Saturday and Sunday remain. The illustrations are by Geraldine Clyne, a very well known children's book illustrator. There is wear to the edges and corners and some scuffing on the heavy board background where hankies originally were. The pop up is in very good condition with only very minor wear.
