New York: Golden Press, 1967. Later printing. Quarto, publisher's pictorially illustrated paper covered boards, illustrated endpapers, original illustrated dust jacket.
Collection of children’s bedtime stories with illustrations by prolific picture book illustrator and self-taught Hungarian artist Tibor Gergely. Widely considered Gergely’s best work, this charming volume collects 32 tales including the classics “Little Red Riding Hood” and “The Three Bears” along with lesser known tales Gergely and collaborator Gertrude Crampton published with Golden Books such as "Scuffy the Tugboat" and "Tootle the Engine." Colorfully illustrated throughout in Gergely’s signature style. Early price sticker to upper board; unclipped dust jacket with some scratches and shallow chips to edges and spine ends. Very good.
