Published in 1951 by Wonder Books of New York, this book was written by Marcia Martin and illustrated by John Hull. It's the charming story of a sad, bumbling clown named Bosco. But don't worry; by the end of the story, he wears a broad grin.

I love the cover of this book! It has a striking graphic and would look great sitting face-out on a shelf. Filled with charming full color illustrations, this book has easy to read large print. Measuring 6.5 by 8 inches, it is 28 pages long. In very good condition, the interior pages are nice and clean. There is some wear to the cover and a little loosening on the inside back cover which is signed by its original owner back in 1952.
