Wonderful blue hard cover book, Surprise Stories, The Child's Own Way Series by Marjorie Hardy, illustrated by Lucille Enders and Matilda Breuer, published 1936 by Wheeler Publishing Company, Chicago. Book measures 6" X 7 1/2" and has 140 numbered pages. Full of wonderful colour illustrations, the binding is sound. There is light age appropriate cover wear, and heavier corner wear. Inside pages have light age appropriate coloring and page 5 has a tear that was mended with scotch tape many years age. I'll let the pictures tell the rest of the story.
