About This Item

New York, NY Franklin Watts: Orchard Books, 1988. Library Binding First Edition USA (1988), so stated. First printing indicated by a complete numerical sequence. First Edition USA (1988), so stated. First printing indicated by a complete numerical sequence. Near Fine in Very Good+ DJ: Book shows indications of very light use: just a touch of spine lean; erasure-rubbed spot to the colorful front free endpaper at former price-placement; else flawless; the binding remains perfectly secure; the text is clean. Free of creased or dog-eared pages in the text. Free of any underlining, hi-lighting or marginalia or marks in the text. Free of ownership names, dates, addresses, notations, inscriptions, stamps, or labels. A very nearly-new copy, structurally sound and tightly bound, showing no discernible wear, but possessing a couple of unobtrusive flaws. Crisp and Bright. Corners sharp. Very close to 'As New'. The DJ shows just a hint of wear to the extremities; the mildest rubbing to the upper rear panel; the price has been clipped; gilt "reinforced binding" band at the lower panels (this is the only discernible indication that this is a so-called "library binding"). No longer quite 'As New', but in bright, fresh condition. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. Squarish Royal Octavo. (9.25 x 8.35 x 0.4 inches). 32 pages. Illustrated in Color. Grade Level: 1 - 2. Language: English. Weight: 11.5 ounces. Hardback with DJ. Jealous of Canary, who lives in a cage in the palace, Crow asks Saint Francis to give him a house, too. Without a word, Saint Francis brings Crow a cage and lets him hop in. At first Crow is very pleased; he is brought food and water and every morning the cage is moved to a new spot in the woods. One day he tries to fly, but his wings and feathers get tangled in the wire bars. All the other birds laugh at him and fly away, except for the little sparrow. She flies to Saint Francis, explains Crow's predicament and offers to stay in the cage herself. Watts's quiet retelling brings a simplicity and assuredness to this timeless story; working in pastels and watercolors, she bestows on each frame of the tale qualities of gentleness and humor. Ages 4-7.
