Seredy was an outstanding illustrator and writer of children's books, born in Hungary and emigrated to the U.S. after the first World War. Her life and her works show clearly her love of nature and strong antiwar beliefs. This book, in particular, presents what seems akin to a 21st Century ecological worldview.

The boards remain fresh and unblemished, green topstain is intact. No writing or ownership details. Something sticky befell page 61 and there is some slight damage to it as well as to the facing page when they were unstuck.Otherwise a very well preserved small quarto.
