The Little Riddle Book, illustrated by Henry R. Martin.

Peter Pauper Press, 1954.

Hardcover with dust jacket, 61 pages.

I run across a lot of Peter Pauper Press books, but have never seen this one before.

Henry Martin's cartoons are wonderful, as are the little zodiac symbols at the top of each page.

This is a first edition - later editions have a different, uncharming cover, whereas this one has the same graphics as the dust jacket.

Flap is unclipped, with original price of $1.25 present.

Great for your PPP collection, or to give to a pun-loving friend.
