REVIEW COPY with b/w photo illustration from the book laid in. Born in Honolulu in 1914, Lucy Herndon Crockett was an author, illustrator, and Red Cross worker. The daughter of a military officer, she moved from place to place following her father's career. Each of her books has a definite relation to a place and her experiences there. PONG CHOOLIE YOU RASCAL! is about a Korean boy who attaches himself to an American unit in the epic retreat from the Manchuria well knit, breathless adventure; it is also an important picture of the betrayal into tyranny and slavery that follows allegiance to Communist precepts. Subtle humor threads the story; Korean superstitions, prejudices, and daily customsare seen through Korean eyes." [Current Biography] Crockett's considerable talent as an illustrator is seen in this 1951 book. Near fine/ Jacket spine slightly darkened, some edgewear, else Vg with colors still bright.
