"The Stranger Star" was written by Allen Crafton. This vintage childrens chapter book is complete with its dust jacket. The jacket's inner flap reads, "A most delightful and chatty old owl tells two children a story in which the whole sky is the playground. The stars and planets are the actors and they are made such interesting and human creatures that they are as real as playmates."
This read aloud book was part of a series by The Goldsmith Publishing Company and copyrighted 1935. The back of the dust jacket reads, "Mothers who are deeply concerned for their children's inner life will find this series a real boon. These stories have been written by men and women whose pens points the way to the heart of things that children love".
The book has red board covers embossed with a black title. The dust jacet is illustrated with a little girls sitting in a garden with domed buildings in the background. (I assume she is the sun as rays are spreading from where she sits). This book is in good vintage condition with a tight binding and clean pages. The pages have yellowed with age. The dust jacket has some chipping on the top and bottom and some wear in the form of small tears and chipping at the spine.
A great vintage book to read aloud at bed time or story time. A great addition to any child's library.
This book measures 7 5/8" x 5" and weighs approximately 1 pounds 12 ounces. i
