About This Item

New York, NY Lothrop, Lee & Shepard, 1987. Hardcover First Ed; First Printing indicated. First Ed; First Printing indicated. Very Good+ in Very Good DJ: Book shows indications of very light use: just a touch of wear to extremities; gift inscription at front end paper; Discoloration at front and rear gutter; binding square and secure; text clean. DJ shows light wear to extremities; mild rubbing; small scuff mark at rear panel; price intact; mylar-protected. No longer 'As New', but overall clean, sturdy, and quite presentable. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 4to. 32pp. Illustrated by Andrew Glass. Hardback with DJ. When Chickpea, a farmer's son no taller than the grass, finds himself inside the mouth of a cow, he doesn't mean to deceive the visiting nobility. But his calls for help are mistaken for the voice of a talking cow, and so he hatches a scheme to make his family as rich as the other farmers in the village. The hoax backfires at the worst possible momentright in front of the emperor. Both Chickpea and his father are banished from the royal chambers in disgrace. And Chickpea's hoped-for wealth and fortune? A rich and lucky man, his father points out, is one who has a loving son. The story alone delivers a worthwhile message, but Glass's captivating illustrations enhance this simple tale: picturesque landscapes in muted pastels that glow with soft highlights, and rosy portraits of kindly souls: Chickpea's generous father, the boy himself and Sweet Esmeralda, the cow. Ages 3-6.
