This surely brings back memories! The book includes such characters as Cookie, Alexander and their Dog, Elmer. It has a 1954 copyright by King Features Syndicate, Inc. and is a First Edition Treasure Books, New York. This story recounts the escapades of Alexander's dog Elmer. This book is in very good condition with only some light scratching on the cover (does not detract). All pages are clean and undamaged. The original owner has written her name on the inside front cover. This is a delightful children's book in great condition.
