Sorting through my grandmother's books, I came across many books from the 1950s and 1960s, mostly for children. She was a retired school teacher and I used to love to read through all of her classroom books that she kept.
This particular book is as follows:
1970 Scholastic Book Services

The back of the book reads as follows:
What in the world came out of that enourmous egg? It weighs 13,900 pounds! It measures 20 feet- and it's not even full grown!
No wonder Nate Twitchell's pet rocks his home town in New Hampshire and astounds the nation. "That creature is a Federal offense- Un-American," cried Senator Granderson. "It's eating the U.S. Government out of house and home!"
When Nate hears the fate that is planned for his pet, he is desperate. How can he save it? How can he hide something that weighs more than six tons?

I have a number of these vintage schoolbooks listed and many more to sort through. Please convo me if there might be a specific book you are looking for.

All books are in very good vintage condition with all pages present, no rips or tears or writing inside, other than, some (will be noted) with my grandma's last name written on the outside or inside the front cover.

ATTENTION INTERNATIONAL BUYERS- I'm always happy to ship internationally, please convo me for a shipping price quote to your country!

I have over 800 vintage items in my store ranging from jewelry to clothes, purses to collectibles, books to ephemera. PLEASE CLICK THE LINK BELOW TO SEE THE REST OF MY SHOP ITEMS:

Please keep in mind that vintage items are just that- Vintage. They've been worn and loved and all are at least 20 years old, most even older. Due to age, there may be certain areas of wear or other imperfections that are inherent to vintage items. I will always mention significant damage or wear but please do not expect things to look like “new” items as they are not new.
