This is a first edition copy of the Talking Dog and the Barking Man by Elizabeth Seeman, illustrated by James Flora and published in 1960 by Franklin Watts, Inc., New York.

From the inside flap: The spotted dog, Candido, ran away from his Mexican mountain village because he got tired of being the paint brush supply. Every time a new batch of pottery needed decoration, little clumps of hair came off his hide to make brushes. Meeting Zumbar, the Barking Man, ventriloquist and medicine man, who became his teacher and good friend, proved wonderfully lucky. How Candido loved singing in the marketplace with Zumbar, dancing, and--most important--carrying around the money basket! This hilarious story of the young country dog and his wise though unpredictable friend tells all the exciting and funny things that happen to the partners on their way to the Big City and fame.

Condition: This item is in good vintage condition. The pages are clean and unmarked, discolored from age and inscribed to a previous owner (please see photos). The binding is tight and the cover has very minor wear. The dust jacket has some damage but retains its charm.

Dimensions: 6"x8.25"x.75" 186 pages
