This is a very good collectible hardcover with dust jacket. 1988 First Edition Harcourt Brace Jovanovich Publishing. This copy is very clean inside and out. Pages are still crisp and clean, free of markings. The binding is tight and straight. Green hardcover boards under jacket are almost like new. The dust jacket is very good, there is light shelf wear including a small tear top edge back side of jacket as shown in photos. The dust jacket is also price clipped inside front flap.

Joyous, humorous, poetic, and uniquely American, Carl Sandberg's Rootabaga Stories are an important part of children's literacy legacy. In these charming stories the railroad tracks go from straight to zigzag, the pigs have bibs on, and where the Village of Cream Puffs floats in the wind. Populated with colorful and imaginative characters such as Hot Dog the Tiger, Poker Face the Baboon, corn fairies, blue foxes and more delight readers of all ages.
The book is illustrated with full color plates by Michael Hague and there is a full color plate for each story. This vintage item is sure to be treasured by readers young and old alike.
