This book is such a nice reminder of a childhood from many years ago. The publisher is The Platt & Munk Co. Inc., of New York, 1940, and is illustrated by Margot Austin and Edited by Watty Piper. The red cloth binding shows minor wear on the edges. The pages show have a few tears on the bottom and are slightly yellowed. This is a great book for the collector who loves books and wants to preserve a bit of history.
