This was my first book, a very easy reader. It was sold and published while I was still working at the old E.P. Dutton in the Guardian Building on 17th Street in New York City. Ann Durrell was the editor there. She really knew her stuff. I was lucky to have the opportunity to work with her.
The book was originally painted in black and white. Some years later, I did it all over in full-color for the reissue. I vaguely remember drawing and painting the original cover directly after having my wisdom teeth pulled.
