Tent Show, Saunders, Susan; Allison, Diane
16 Tent Show Saunders, Susan; Allison, Diane
Good. 
Hardcover. Stated 1st edition hardcover with dustjacket 1990 Dutton. Text very clean. Remainder mark at bottom page edge. Light dampstain to inside corner of back jacket. 70pp, B/W illustrations. Language: English. 'Saunders combines the present with the past in a humorous account of the problems of two very real little girls. Ellie is furious with her older sister for dropping out of college to marry a hog farmer. She tells her tales of woe to her grandmother's actress friend, Sara, who is visiting from New York, and what follows is Sara's story of her youth. She tells how she tried to make her sister's boyfriend's beloved gray horse look like an Indian chief's by decorating him with war paint made of laundry bluing, and of sneaking out of her house to attend a tent show. She became a replacement for a sick child actor--until she was recognized by her dog and taken home in disgrace. Sara's story helps Ellie realize that she can not control her sister's life, but that she can determine what happens in her own. The character of Sara is particularly well developed, both as a child and an adult, and it will be easy for readers to see the child in the adult. Numerous black-and-white illustrations deftly capture and enhance the events and characters. The format is attractive, with well-spaced print that is large enough to encourage children just beginning chapter books. The frequent illustrations and short chapters will also help reluctant readers sustain their interest in this fun-filled book.'--Nancy P. Reeder, School Library Journal, 1990.

Hardcover. Stated 1st edition hardcover with dustjacket 1990 Dutton. Nice new blank bookplate covers old writing inside front cover. Very clean; pages bright; binding tight; jacket crisp. 120 pages; color artwork. Language: English. Cover art by Maurice Sendak. For ages ca. 7-12.

Zelinsky, Steven Kellogg, more. ''[I]t's hard to imagine a more timely and welcome book for children. ... The stories about the roots of war are told on a scale that children can grasp: envy between 2 girls in neighboring treehouses escalates into a cold war; a pair of princes squabble over their turf and eventually destroy each other's kingdoms. Equally useful for home, library or classroom--where more and more teachers are including units on peace--this thoughtfully written, attractively designed volume is a winner in every way.'--Publishers Weekly, 1990.
