So many of the best illustrators (and authors) of the mid-20th century worked for Golden Books that it's hard to list them all, but Richard Scarry is certainly near the top of the list. Here, he lends his talents to one of the most popular early Golden Books, K. and B. Jackson's Duck and His Friends (#81). Not one of three best friends...Duck, Mouse and Jack Rabbit...liked the water, but Mouse and Jack Rabbit overcome their fears to help Duck learn to swim. A first edition (A) in Near Fine condition. The inside front boards with a crack at the gutter (but holding tight).
