About this Item

A Volland "Sunny" Book. Deep-blue boards, measuring 7 1/2" x 6", with Orange lettering, and a large image of Raggedy Ann reading a book,inside an orange and green circle. Bright pictorial endpapers showing Raggedy Ann carrying an apronful of block letters up the walk to visit a kindly elf, whose yard is filled with other block letters "growing" in the lawn. Just a hint of rubbing to extremities. Previous owner's name and "Xmas 1933" date to front free endpaper. Top of cardboard box replicates cover of book, and has done a great job protecting it. Bottom section of box (white) has child's signature in pencil. Some soiling and a bit of cornerwear to box, which shows a small tear to top and bottom flaps. Very nice copy! Book consists of an introduction to each letter in the alphabet, with drop caps, accompanied by a rhymed couplet, and lovely illustrations. 40 pp. and a page of ads at rear. Opposite pages are folksy explanations about some of the alphabetical examples (Crickets and Dwarves, Elves and Fairies, Katydids, and later on, values like Usefulness, Loyalty, Goodness, Kindness, Friendliness.
