Frog and Toad Are Friends

by Lobel, Arnold

  • Used
  • first
New York, Evanston, & London: Harper & Row, Publishers, 1970. First edition. First edition. (First printing with full number line on copyright page.) 64 pp. Bound in publisher's illustrated boards matching jacket design. Fine in Fine double-sided dust jacket with little laminate bubbling along gutters, very bright and clean. A superb copy of a surprisingly rare children's book.

The first of the Frog and Toad books, a Caldecott Honor book. In 2012, it was ranked number 15 among the "Top 100 Picture Books" in a survey published by School Library Journal. Its portrayal of what would eventually become better-known as a same-sex relationship in a kids' book was quite ahead of its time, and preceded the author's own coming out to his family in 1974.

Description:
New York: The Viking Press, 1962. First Edition. First edition, first printing in correct dust jacket. Signed by Ezra Jack Keats, inscribed to book designer Jane Byers Bierhorst, "with whom its been pleasant working." They would collaborate on later books. 34 pp. Bound in publisher's blue cloth with white and red lettering. Near Fine with light wear, subtle mottling to cloth, in Very Good dust jacket, unclipped ($3.00) with absolutely no Caldecott award seal, chipped at head and tail, rubbed and worn along folds, a few short closed tears. Nice shape overall. A truly iconic work, The Snowy Day has been named on the most important books of the 20th century by the New York Public Library, inspired a series of U.S. postage stamps in 2017, and was the first children's book with a Black protagonist to win a major award. While first editions are quite rare and sought-after, signed or inscribed copies are almost unheard of.
