First Printing. Octavo (24cm); dark orange paper and red cloth-covered boards, with titles stamped in black on spine; dustjacket; [vi],185,[1]pp. Warmly inscribed by the author on the half-title page: "O, glory, glory, glory be, will wonders never cease! For Sue Glazer - my best rooter and good, good friend. Thank you, thank you, love and kisses, Ellen Raskin. / Note: This book is one of the first off the press - the dedication may be belated, but its a good one. E.R." Next to her inscription Raskin has added a large, humorous caricature of herself, crowned as "Miss Newberry," holding a large scepter, with the gold Newberry Medal seal at the top. Fine in a Fine, unclipped dustjacket (priced $7.95).


Distinguished copy of Raskin's Newberry Award-winning mystery novel, in which a wealthy industrialist dies, and his will calls for his "heirs" to meet at his mansion, where he sets out a game: the heirs are paired up, with each pair receiving a set of clues and $10,000. With the money and clues, they are to determine who killed Westing and why. This copy inscribed for Dr. Susan Mandel Glazer (1939-2017), a close friend of Raskin's, and an internationally recognized literacy advocate who taught at Rider University for 45 years.
