Thornton Burgess and Harrison Cady formed one of the most successful author/illustrator teams in the history of children's literature. Their collaborations took a variety of forms, from lavish hardbound volumes to inexpensive miniatures in wraps. Grandfather Frog Stays in the Smiling Pool measures just 2-1/8 x 2-7/8" and features a full-color cover, double-page spread and incidental smaller drawings by Cady. Interestingly, this appears to have been a give-away premium...the back cover features an ad for Renz's Bread. In Fine condition.
