SIGNED by the author - In Corgiville, as in many small towns all over America, the biggest event of the year is the local Fair. And the most exciting thing at the Corgiville Fair is the goat race. Caleb Corgi had spent many months training his goat Josephine for the big event. But Edgar Tomcat's goat was fast, too, and Caleb knew that Edgar was not above indulging in some tricks in order to win. The sights, sounds, and smells, the fun and excitement of a typical small-town fair are captured with humor and affection both in the text and in the marvelously detailed watercolor paintings. Here is Tasha Tudor's most original work, a masterpiece of gentle satire, a loving observation of a particular segment of rural American life couched in terms of a rollicking story, superbly illustrated on each page. The endpapers are individually illustrated as well, where her signature is located on the ffep. Unpaginated, blue quarter cloth. The top of the spine shows a bit of wear on the jacket; the jacket has a 1/2" tear on the front bottom right side, a 1/4" piece of jacket missing at the bottom back, and a darkened area at the top edge. The price is clipped. ; 4to - over 9 3/4 - 12" wide; 48 pages; Signed by Author(s)
