Product description

Tamara Kitt
Pictures by Brinton Turkle
Abelard-Schuman, copyright 1969.
Hardback; 185 x 260 mm; 41 pages, unpaginated.
This is a library edition in which the dust jacket has been enclosed in a transparent protective cover affixed internally to the covers of the book. Beneath the protective cover slight wear to the jacket can be seen. The book itself is in very good condition with only slight foxing of the top edges of the leaves, visible when the book is closed. The recto of the front free endpaper is annotated in blue and black ink, in a child’s hand, “9 99 Christopher Bone”.
This is a delightful adaptation of an old folk tale that has come down through the years in various guises. The tale of a literal minded son, here named Jake, who follows his mother’s instructions in the most inappropriate situations has been collected from all over the world.
The tale here is charmingly retold by Tamara Kitt, and complemented by delightful illustrations by Brinton Turkle. Turkle, born 1915, is an American author and illustrator best known for his four picture books, illustrated with watercolors, about a charming young 19th century Nantucket Quaker named Obadiah. This book appears to be scarce with few copies appearing online.
