Many Giant Golden Books were originally published with a dust jacket but due to the age and nature of the intended audience, very few came through with the jacket intact. Farm Stories features fifty original rural tales by K. and B. Jackson, beautifully illustrated by Golden Book great, Gustaf Tenggren. This title won the NY Herald Tribune's 1946 Spring Book Festival Children's Award (at the time, second only to the Caldecott) and is an early (third) printing in About Fine condition in the elusive dust jacket.
