The story of mama poodle and her children, Suzette and Bobo. Father had gone to visit his mother and mailed the children gifts. Suzette received a pocketbook, pink ballet skirt and a silver crown. Bobo received a wristwatch and brass trumpet. They then decide to write their father a letter and go on to play with the new gifts they had received.
Hardcover children's book measuring 6 5/8 inches wide x 8 1/4 inches long with 20 pages. Color illustrations throughout.
Condition is good with some wear to the corners and edges of the covers. Interior is very good with no marks or tears to pages. Former owners name, address, and phone number written inside the front cover in ink (which I've blocked out with the blue lines, on photo only, not on the book itself.) And a small "+" written on the title page in ink.
Very cute children's book for your collection!
