About this Item

What a wonderful autumn read--the story of the Pringle farm where amazing pumpkins grow and the secret that young Joe Prinkle keeps despite his transformation and the wiles of The Ancient Mariner, The Pieman, The Corn Dodger, Davy Jones and a group of pumpkin pie loving pirates. This first edition was my mother's (1903-1999) childhood treasure and I think it was read and re-read every autumn though my youth. And, yes, this copy shows the love. The green cloth cover front pictures the Ancient Mariner and Davy Jones in dark green and orange. It is rubbed with an illegible spine open at the back board. The extremes are very frayed; the edges and corners badly worn. Smudges and soiling. The cover is fully detached from the text block. The stained endpapers show full page illustration of Pumpkin-Head, Davy Jones and the Corn Dodger in orange and black. Of the 239 pages one hundred have some minor foxing, soiling or smudging. Five pages have been taped in the gutter and five pages are detached. Three have small tears. The spine is cracked in four places in the text block. The illustrations by W. W. Denslow include sixteen full page colored illustrations with drawings on almost every other page throughout. Absolutely charming story--wonderful pictures--a too much loved book.
