Little Toot on the Thames.

Gramatky, Hardie (illus.)

NY: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1964. Square octavo. 86pp. First edition. Inscribed by the author/illustrator, Hardie Gramatky, on the title page. The first sequel to Gramatky's first children's book, 1939's Little Toot, tells the story of the adventurous tugboat's journey across the Atlantic to London. There he encounters London Bridge, the Henley Royal Regatta, and (RMS) Queen Elizabeth herself, who tows him home. Gramatky was nationally recognized for his watercolors before he published the first Little Toot book, and he was named one of America's twenty greatest watercolorists by Andrew Wyeth. Little Toot was an international bestseller that spawned five sequels and was adapted into a short film by Disney as part of 1948's Melody Time. A fine copy in the library binding of illustrated cloth, with a fine dust jacket that shows only minor wear to edges. Item #26507

Price: $450.00
