THE LITTLE ISLAND by Golden MacDonald


by Golden MacDonald ; illustrated by Leonard Weisgard

Pub Date: June 15th, 1946
ISBN: 978-0-385-74640-3
Publisher: Doubleday

Companion volume to Little Last Lamb in this story of a little island in the ocean, and the changes that come to it during the four seasons, of the lobsters and gulls and spiders and seals who visit it and of a special visitor who came and learned that he and the island were attached to the rest of the world. An imaginative, charming book, with a bit of unnecessary preciousness. Weisgard's illustrations are completely out of key—plush and with more than oriental lavishness. Gift merchandise for the carriage trade.
