1982 Shadow ~ Author Marcia Brown ~ Third Edition ~ Near Mint Condition.
This a fantastic, never read (or very minimally read), softcover copy of Shadow, a book translated and illustrated by Marcia Brown from the French of Blaise Cenrars.
This book was written in 1982 and this copy appears to be the third printing but I can't determine the copyright reprint date.
Ms. Brown was awarded The Caldecott Medal for this book in 1983 (and has won the same award for 2 earlier books). She was also awarded the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award in 1992, for her contributions to children's literature.
"What is Shadow? It comes out at night to prowl and mingle with the dancers, yet Shadow gets torn time and time again, sprawling full length on the ground each time. Is it magic? Is it dangerous? What is Shadow?"
Absolutey AMAZING illustrations bring life to this delightful story. It is no wonder why this book is still in print after almost 20 years.
