Signed by Author; A lovely copy signed and inscribed on half title page by the author. Corners lightly bumped. Price clipped faintly rubbed dust wrapper has faintest edgewear, gold 'Orchard Reinforced Binding' sticker a bit worn. This is the first printing of the re-inforced library edition, appropriate as this Newbery award winning author also specialized in Children's Services for 35 years in the Los Angeles Public Library system. This copy has never lived in a library. ; In her first book, the author 'tells her unique version of ``Stone Soup'' with humor and panache, her characters ``a crowd of five rowdy bad boys'' (hungry, too) who accost a mellow, wise old man--who sends them to their mothers to ask ``kindly'' for just a carrot, etc., for his miraculous stew.' 'Shenon's mirthful ink-and-watercolor pictures illustrate this superbly narrated story--an ideal read-aloud. Ages 3-8.'; Image is actual copy on offer.
