Weekly Reader Children's Book Club presents Petunia by Roger Duvoisin. In this, the first of the series of classic books featuring the silly goose, Petunia finds a book—and, deciding that if she owns a book she must be wise, dispenses hilariously mistaken advice to the other animals in the farmyard.

Hardcover. 10" x 8". 32 pages. Random House. C 1950. This looks like a reprint from the 70s.

Great condition. Light wear to cover edges. Pages and binding tight.

About the author~ Roger Duvoisin was born in Geneva, Switzerland, in 1904 and came to the U.S.A. in 1925.

He received the Caldecott Medal in 1947 for White Snow, Bright Snow and a Caldecott Honor in 1966. He died in 1980. {Amazon}
