FARBER, Norma. As I Was Crossing Boston Common. Puctures by Arnold Lobel. New York: E.P. Dutton & Company Inc., (1975). First US Printing. Pp. (32). Unpaginated. Illustrated. Oblong 8vo, mustard cloth with black turtle decoration to front board, black lettering to spine. "A turtle is crossing BostonCommon and meets a most uncommon procession of animals: Angwantibo, Booboo k, Coypu, Desman, Entellus, and so on and on -- one leading the next in a stately alphabetical pageant. But not only is it alphabetical -- it is also zoological. For every one of the ebasts with the tongue-twisting, mythical-sounding names is a real animal. Each is described in the back of the book.Norma Farber has raided the pages of the unabridged dictionary for her del ightful and imaginitive poem. And Arnold Lobel has gaily and meticulously created a memorable visual parade framed by a Boston as charmingly prim as an old engraving. The combination makes a book for almost endless looking and rereading." - from the dustjacket. Very good in nicked, short-closed-tornunclipped dustjacket. 30.00
