Title: Wooden Willie by Johnny Gruelle
Appears to be a first or early edition of Wooden Willie by the same author who also wrote the Raggedy Ann Books.
Content: I was expecting a rather innocent book by the author of Raggedy Ann. However, while this is a children’s book, it also abounds with racial stereotypes. Illustrated, story line, and character names. This is a collectors issue and not to be given to impressionable minds.
Condition: Worn and the edges are showing. One torn page. Lithographs are in good shape. Some crayon, pen marks, a name has been partially erased. If you have condition questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.
A difficult book to find, but I can understand why there aren’t a lot of copies available.
