The art in this little book is saturated with color and utterly charming, as is the font used for the printing. There are six short chapters: Nancy Brown Comes To Friendly Town; The Poorest Girl in Friendly Town; June Ann's Favorites; Mischief in Friendly Town; The Party For Nancy Brown; and Careless Ann. What adds to the specialness is the former owner's name printed in pencil at back in the space provided. I was actually sitting next to her at the auction of her beloved books. I bought many of them -- a bittersweet thing --and yet she told me that she was happy that I did. The book measures 5" x 7" with 35 counted pages. Contents are pristine -- cover shows some fading to front which is more gray than blue and some wear spots to back (see last picture). The book is tightly bound with no cracking to hinges. would make a sweet surprise in a Christmas stocking.
