Description: Part of the Happy Ending™ series, this book helps children learn the words for objects they see at a stationer's, grocer's, and a department store, as they accompany Tiggy the hedgehog on a shopping trip for her first day at school.
Charming, all-American, full-page, colour illustrations grace every page. The boards forming the pages are unusually thin: approx. 2 mm.
The front board is in very good condition and still has its original price sticker affixed. The rear, on the other hand, has suffered some negligible discolouration from exposure to sunlight along the top, and there are some small scars and pockmarks near the bottom. Internally, there is a rubber stamp mark on the front pastedown, otherwise the boards are in excellent, unmarked condition.
A nice copy of a rare book.
Measures 27.5 cm × 20.5 cm (11″ × 8.2″). 4to. Unpaginated.
