About this Item

Highly entertaining, very hard-to-find book about a Whooping Crane who just loved to dress up in brilliantly designed clothes in this title by Thackray, best known for her stories for Sesame Street and The Electric Company. Extraordinary artwork by Forrest, who did work for TV as well and INSCRIBED BY HER ON THE FFE. Text is printed in fancy calligraphy by Nai Y Chang. Slightly sunned at the edges; dust jacket has a large chip around the spine area as well as sunning. Still, a collectible book by the defunct but marvelous Green Tiger Press. OUT OF PRINT.
