Descripción

Little Pear and the Rabbits, Written and Illustrated by Eleanor Frances Lattimore, was published by William Morrow & Company, New York, in 1956. This 125-page, 56-year-old, 5 3/4" X 8 1/2", apparent First Edition offering is a rebound, ex-library copy in G condition. There is some modest yellowing of end papers front and back as well as pages of text, and limited library markings/roughness resulting from removal of same on front paste down page are seen. There is light, random foxing on a modest number of pages, and some shelf wear is observed at top and bottom edges of spine. Peppered with the author's black and white Drawings/Sketches, this book is actually the sequel to Mrs. Lattimore's very first novel, Little Pear, published in 1931--it just happened to be some twenty-five years in the making. The author, born in China, lived the first sixteen years of her life there, so this entertaining window into the day-to-day adventures, and misadventures, of a little Chinese boy, very busy trying to grow up as quickly as possible, takes place within a setting well-known to our storyteller. Presented in ten chapters, this is really the story of a young boy who is old enough to wish and dream and know, in his heart of hearts, what he wants to do as his life's work (that is, to be a farmer, just like his beloved father), but is not now mature enough, or physically strong enough, to actively participate or carry out the many chores/tasks involved in working a farm. So, we are treated to what passes for Little Pear's day-to-day life, with all of its ups and downs. This is a charming tale which also acquaints its readers with many aspects of Chinese tradition/culture/society. Thank you!!. N° de ref. de la librería 006007
