Originally published as The Animal Fair, Alice and Martin Provensen's The Animal Book won the 1952 NYT Best Illustrated Award. The author/illustrator husband-and-wife team provide page after page of stories, poems, and games, all pictured in their unique colorful style. This large (10 x 13"), scarce Giant Golden Book is in About Fine condition with just a bit of wear to the lower corners and is early evidence of a magnificent career that would culminate with the Caldecott Medal for The Glorious Flight in 1984 (as well as the Newbery Medal's illustrations for A Visit to William Blake's Inn in 1982). An early (B) edition.
