Sharp copy of the Caldecott Medal-winning author's first book, set in the fictional town of Alto, Ohio. The story of a boy named Lentil, who was "very happy except for one major tragedy - he couldn't sing a note, he couldn't even whistle...One day a great emergency confronted the town of Alto, Ohio, and this book tells how Lentil and his harmonica rose to the occasion" (from front flap). An attractive copy of an important debut.
