This is a delightful third printing of the Little Golden Book entitled The Tawny Scrawny Lion and the Clever Monkey. The book is by James Carey and illustrated by Milli Jancar. It has a 1974 copyright date and third printing date of 1977. The cover price is 49 cents.
This vintage Little Golden book tells us about the tawny scrawny lion who wanted to gain some weight. He had a hard time finding anything to eat until a little rabbit family fed him carrot stew. When his friends went on a trip he became scrawny again. Then he met a little monkey---and the story goes on.
This book is in very good condition. The pages are all clean and crisp with no writing, tearing. There is light soiling at the bottom of the first page. Other than that, his book actually looks virtually unused. This vintage Little Golden Book will be a wonderful addition to any collection.
