Collector's 1961 first edition vintage children's hardcover book w/ rare original unclipped dust jacket $3.00 - The Big Splash.

This swiftly paced story is packed with terrific characters, the excitement of a mystery, resourceful enterprise, picturesque dialogue, and, above all, good rollicking fun.

Fabulous illustrations by Lilian Obligado. Numerous black & white line drawings including full page plates. Photos do not fully capture elaborate detail; wait until you see up close. WOW!!

Written by Carol Kendall. Publisher: The Viking Press, Copyright, 1960, first edition, 1961, 2nd printing.

Dustjacket Flap:

It all started with Huggy's longing for a television set. If he hadn't been nursing along last few drops of his Coke until end of serial on screen at Clock's Drug Store, he might never had met smooth talking Mr. Roper, nor have had alluring prospect of owning a set dangled before him.
