Description: "Perhaps Mary might have wished that the wind had not blown her beach ball away. But young lookers will rejoice, for as Mary hunts for her ball, they will be hunting for objects from A to Z, counting from 1 to 10, seeing how many opposites they can find, naming animals, discovering colors, identifying shapes, working their way through a maze—and having a wonderful time. In a book as full of fun as a beach on a summer day, every reader will find surprises, smiles, and sheer satisfaction."
Humorously illustrated in full-colour throughout. Colour photograph of author/illustrator on rear flap.
Glazed pictorial boards repeat jacket design. Lower corners bumped; upper straight. Spine lightly bumped at head. Jacket scuffed along extremities; negligible closed tear on rear where it meets the spine. Otherwise in excellent condition; not price-clipped (bears original price of $12.95).
