Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall; A most unusual signed and inscribed copy of the 1st printing in immaculate condition. Inscribed on the dedication page and signed by both Carolyn Coman and Lance Hidy as well as their daugter Anna, whom it might be assumed is the the girl in the story. It is also inscribed and signed by "Mr Mudd and Louis" with each in turn signing both of their names. The book is dedicated to Anna, Louis and Monty (presumably Mr. Mudd of the story). The inscriptions are addressed to a couple who became friends with the authors and whom it is said in the inscription first met at Mr. Mudd's. Enigmatic and very warm inscriptions by all of the book's creators and protagonists. Quite unusual and rather unique thus. A color photograph of a "Mr. Mudd" doll on a table against a wall where several Hidy posters are displayed - is laid in at front. Dated 1996 New Haven. F/F; Signed by Author & Illustrator.

Computer-generated illustrations adorn a charming story about a young girl's friendship with an antique collector who becomes angry when she loses the gift that he gave her.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Staying with ``distant relative'' Mr. Mudd, Lucy is shown many wonderful things (music-boxes, old books) and even given a real ruby ring, but she's deprived of any pleasure by his constant warnings: everything is too precious to be touched. Rebelliously, Lucy takes the ring--and then loses it. Cowed by Mr. Mudd's anger, she is reluctant to tell him when she also loses her first tooth, but then bursts forth with all her true feelings. Fortunately, Mr. Mudd is human, too: Realizing his error, he slips the ring (which he's found) under her pillow in place of the tooth, then graciously reforms. The message is obvious, but it's told with enough grace to give it some power. Hidy's computer-generated illustrations (full details in an extensive colophon) are a mixed success: simple lines delineate emotions with the surprising sensitivity of recent film animation, and some of the compositions--especially where colored forms are silhouetted against a white ground--are elegantly spare. The sophisticated color sometimes seems garish, or merely stolid; more often, however, the subtle tones and juxtapositions contribute meaning. An interesting effort, adding up to more than just a worthy experiment. (Picture book. 4-8) -- Copyright ©1992, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
