An attractive first printing of the first edition in Fine condition in just about Fine pictorial dust-jacket.

Macaulay added a charming drawing with an added "crime pays" commentary; The winner the 1991 Caldecott medal, contains a puzzle, a game, and four seemingly unfolding stories with each double-page spread: Seeing Things, Problem Parents, A Waiting Game, and Udder Chaos. "Nothing can be intelligently or intelligibly recorded on a piece of paper unless true seeing occurs: first on the part of the person making the picture, and then on the part of the person reading it. " -David Macaulay; Color Illustrations .

Four stories are told simultaneously, with each double-page spread divided into quadrants. The stories do not necessarily take place at the same moment in time, but are they really one story?
