About this Item

New, and pristine, book with a very Near Fine jacket. First edition and first printing. See scans and description. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1994. Mark Saltzman's "Woodchuck Nation", with original cover sticker stating "for a new Woodstock generation". Illustrated by Jon Buller. Quarto, wraparound jacket illustrated by Buller, glossy illustrated boards with wraparound illustration matching the jacket, illustrated endpapers, 32 pp. excluding endpapers. Flawless book; jacket has a small smudge on front cover; the scarce original sticker does show some fade. See scans. Spine color variations on both jacket and books are as-produced and intentional variations, not fade. Flawless. Saltzman's children's tale of the greatest woodchuck rock concert ever, attended by countless hippie 'chucks, with the protagonists here being Macra-May and Digger. The rock entertainers do include other species, however - Jimi Hendrake, Joe Cockatoo, Rabbit Shankar, and Jerry Garseagull being among those. Getting scarce. Collectible first printing in primo condition. Ships in a new, sturdy, protective box, of course - not a bag. L45n. Bookseller Inventory # 61846

About this title

Synopsis:

Celebrates the twenty-fifth anniversary of Woodstock with Zal and Macra-May and their memories of Jerry Garseagull, Joe Cockatoo, and Rabbit Shankar, in a totally groovy, nostalgic storybook.

From Publishers Weekly:

As woodchucks Zal and May stand on a grassy knoll with their three children--Vera, Chook and Dave--the father tells the furry youngsters why they have come to this spot in the Cat Skull mountains. Exactly 25 years before, Zal and May traveled (via their friend's VW van, covered with painted flowers) to the Woodchuck Festival, where thousands of woodchucks, squirrels, prairie dogs and beavers gathered to celebrate "paws and love," and to listen to the music of Jimi Hendrake, Jerry Garseagull and Joe Cockatoo. Buller (coauthor of Railroad Toad and No Tooth, No Quarter! ) gives Saltzman's clever sendup a big boost with his riotous, revisionist depiction of the Woodstock scene--complete with tents, tie-dyed shirts, right-on signs ("Remember Bambi's Mother!"; "Chicken Little Was Right") and totally mellow animal faces. Yesterday's kids will be best able to appreciate songwriter and debut author Saltzman's period-based wordplay and allusions to '60s lyrics (Zal gets some Norwegian wood for his birthday; May--then called Macra-May--tells him, "I am you as you are me and we are furry woodchucks--all together"). All ages.
