I'm still amazed at the level of talent drawn to the early Little Golden Books. Ever wonder where Caldecott Award-winner (for Saint George and the Dragon) Trina Schart Hyman got her start? Wonder no longer. Bow Wow! Meow! (Little Golden Book #523) was illustrated by the artist Trina Schart, prior to her marriage. With a simple text for the youngest child by Melanie Bellah ("How does the pigeon go? Coo, coo. How does the lamb go? Baa, baa."). A first edition (A) in VG+ condition with a  touch of wear to the external corners and a slightly rumpled title page.
