Three Children's Novels By Christopher Pearse Cranch


153 pages; Fine/Fine. As new. Boards are straight, tips are pointed, spine is square and pages are clean. DJ is great! In protective sleeve. An excellent gift! Cranch, Christopher Pearce , (1813-1892) . Cranch was the first American author to write novel length works solely for children, and to fuse fantasy and adventure. Huggermuggers and Kobboltozo (a sequel to Huggermuggers) relate the still entertaining escapades of a shipwrecked American boy, Jacky Cable, and the gentle giants and evil dwarfs who inhabit the unknown island on which he is marooned. Also there is Dr. Theophilus or The Enchanted Clothes, the third novel in this book. The story-telling talents of Christopher Pearce Cranch have brought these characters to life with gentle humor and a now seldom heard message of cooperation and harmony.
