12 Richard Michelson [signed] Grandpa's Gamble
New York Marshall Cavendish 1999 0761450343 / 9780761450344 1st Edition Hardcover As New As New Book Barry Moser [signed] Signed By Barry Moser & Michaelson
As their parents prepare for the Passover seder, sometime in the era of Babe Ruth, a boy and his sister have to keep quiet, because Grandpa Sam is busy davening (praying). The children are convinced that Grandpa is utterly boring until he begins to tell them about his childhood in Poland and his emigration to America. Michelson (Animals That Ought to Be) departs from the now-familiar pattern of immigration stories by rendering young Sam's disillusionment with the promised land. When Grandpa first arrived in the slums of New York, times were so tough that, as Sam's cousin told him, ""An honest man can't even make a living picking pockets anymore."" Sam learns to cheat at cards and grows rich gambling-- until his young daughter's sudden illness prompts him to make one final, momentous wager with God. The author heightens the plot with his flavorful dialog; Moser's illustrations are rendered in graphite and sepia on antique paper. The artist chooses to illustrate with somber tones that create a counterpoint to the vibrantly tale.

Fables For Our Time, Thurber, James
15 Thurber, James Fables For Our Time
New York Harper & Row 1940 Hardcover Near Fine Near Fine Book James Thurber Signed by Author(s)
Clean, square, sharp, bright, and tight, in a near fine dust jacket Thurber updates some old fables and creates some new ones of his own. Notably there is 'The Bear Who Could Take It Or Leave It Alone' about a bear who lapses into alcoholism before sobering up and going too far that way. (He used to say 'See what the bears in the back room will have.') Also an updated version of 'Little Red Riding Hood' which ends with the immortal lines, "even in a nightcap a wolf does not look any more like your grandmother than the Metro-Goldwyn lion looks like Calvin Coolidge. So the little girl took an automatic out of her basket and shot the wolf dead." All the fables have one-line morals. The moral of 'Little Red Riding Hood' is "Young girls are not so easy to fool these days." Another fable concerns a non-materialist chipmunk who likes to arrange nuts in pretty patterns rather than just piling up as many as he can. He is constantly nagged by his chipmunk wife for this.
