76-page stapled softcover, illustrated green wraps. Signed by the author inside front cover. Self-published. No date shown for publication (c.1970). Book 1 of a trilogy.

This little book has been written at two reading levels, in the form a countryside ramble. The poetry, paintings, and infants' drawings will be easily identified and understood by the younger children, while the narrative is more for grown-ups and older children. The story is presented first followed by children's poetry and pictures. Paperback Signed by Author No Date Given. Condition: VG. Previous owner gift inscription also inside front cover.
