Feodor Rojankovsky was born in Russia, but lived much of his early adult life in Poland and then Paris, eventually working as an illustrator for the progressive Pere Castor Books. Emigrating to the United States in the 1940's Rojan was greeted by George Duplaix, head of the Artists and Writers' Guild and a major player at Little Golden Books. Animal Stories, written by Duplaix and illustrated by Rojankovsky, is one of their best collaborations, with magnificent full-color pictures throughout. This large (10 x 13"), Giant Golden Book is in Fine condition in a scarce About Fine dust jacket. An early (fifth) edition in remarkable shape. Rojankovsky later won the Caldecott Medal in 1956 for Frog Went A-Courtin'.
