King, Marian, Illustrated by: Smock, Nell Stolp  
Publisher: Albert Whitman & Co., 1939 Chicago, IL.
Book. Book condition: Very Good. Fair to Good. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall Junior Press Books. "Piccolino, a little gray and brown donkey, pulls one of the most beautiful carts in Sicily. It has two wheels. It is painted in the brightest colors. And when Piccolino is happy, the cart travels very fast indeed. He and his master Micco present such a dashing picture that they are selected to join a circus and travel about in Europe. But neither Piccolino nor his young master like circus life and are very homesick. How the pair return to their beloved Sicily makes a very attractive little story for the youngest readers. Miss King has spent the last year on the island of Sicily, gathering her material. Mrs. Smock already has a number of well known books whose illustrations are hers, including Jocko and Polly Parrot. Piccolino is fully illustrated in colors and in black and white." 32 pages. Book is in VERY GOOD condition. Dust jacket is in FAIR to GOOD condition; shelfwear, but complete.

Nyce, Vera Illustrator: Illustrated by Helene Nyce  
A Jolly Christmas at the Patterprints
Publisher: New York 1971.
Very Good+ with no dust jacket; Boards show wear at edges and corners. Front paste-down has what might be a couple of stains or spots, but they also might be part of the illustration. It's hard to tell. Image is of actual book for sale. Parents' Magazine Not Indicated Hardcover Oblong 12mo 7" - 7½; 27 pages; This old fashioned children's Christmas story was written and illustrated around 1920, but not published until 1971. Illustrated boards. The author and artist were best known for their Flossie Fisher's Funnies which ran regularly in the Ladies Home Journal before 1915. This story of a mouse family's Christmas is sure to appeal to today's young children as much as it did to their great grandparents when they were young. Both illustrations and plot line are lively, especially when Santa arrives a bit too early while the soup is still cooking in the fireplace and he falls down the chimney into the soup pot. You'll have to read the book to see what happens next!

Illustrated by Leonard Shortall. ; A m a z o n b u y e r s please note: Image does not match this edition. This edition is only 6 inches tall, and resembles only the bottom half (approximately) of what is shown in the image.

Otherwise only moderate edgewear. No marks, no scribbles. Sold as is. ; Golden Play and Learn Book Series
