Fortunately by Remy Charlip.

Originally published in the 1960s, this is a later edition from 1987. Published by Four Winds Press / Macmillan Publishing Company.



44 pages / 7.5 x 10.25 x .45 inches / 19 x 26 x 1.1 centimeters


Please see the images above for an accurate representation of what the book looks like, but...

Ex-libary book, so all the trappings of that. Protective plastic covering over the dust jacket. Sticker over spine. Scuffing. Some stains on that clear covering. Tape / sticker residue / sticker on back cover.

Stamped on publishing info page.

The paper of the endpapers is ripping away from the spine a bit. Tear.

Some small rips and tears throughout. A few little stains. A hunk torn out of last page, but no words are missing. Stain on last page (paint?).


Fortunately one day, Ned got a letter that said, "Please come to a Surprise Party."

But unfortunately the party was in Florida and he was in New York.

Fortunately a friend loaned him an airplane.

Unfortunately the motor exploded.

Fortunately there was a parachute in the airplane.

Unfortunately there was a hole in the parachute....

So begins this unique tale by beloved author-illustrator Remy Charlip. Good fortune follows bad through an exciting and hilarious series of cliff-hanging escapades designed to keep readers on the edge of their seats.
