Description

Title: Wooden Willie by Johnny Gruelle

Copyright 1927

 

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.
