About this Item

126 p. Green cloth-vered boards. 5.25x7.75in. Black titles and cover illustration, yellow design elements. Uneven right page block edges, as designed. RARE. Effie Power of the Cleveland, Ohio, Public Library was the director working with children. She culled international folk tales into several books, designed for reading aloud and sized for easy handling; two are listed inside ('Bag O' Tales' and 'Blue Carvan Tales'). This title comes from a tale in which a father will not set out walking with his son to a distant job until the son understands what it means to 'shorten the road'. These tales are drawn from Swedish, European, English, Celtic, and Czech sources. Very good. No dust jacket. Tight binding. Intact. Near fine but for minor corner and spine end rubs, and discoloration on endpapers inside toward spine fold and outside edges over production elements. Bookseller Inventory # Alibris.62990002049

Store Description

Hi, Folks ... Mom said, 'I need to downsize'. Moving to assisted living, what she couldn't take included 8,000-plus books & records. A decade later, my upcountry barn is bursting. Books multiply as others recycle priorities. I now have 30,000 or more books (not yet all online) looking for good homes, and my learning curve has been a roller coaster. I celebrate word-crafters, thought-tumblers, laughter ... the arts of communication at every turn. I preserve, protect, and share. I am also Hedgehog Publishing, 'Words & Pictures by & for Folks with Prickly Backs, Soft Bellies, & Small Brains'.
