PADDY PORK'S HOLIDAY

GOODALL,JOHN. PADDY PORK'S HOLIDAY: MANUSCRIPT. Offered here is the original book of watercolor drawings for Goodall's picture book Paddy Pork's Holiday, published in 1976 by Macmillan in London and Atheneum in New York. It is bright and in Fine condition with almost the complete story (it does not have the publisher's title and first drawing). The pen and watercolor drawings by Goodall are laid into a folder. There are thirteen two-sided drawings measuring 10 1/2 by 5 inches, each with a flap that changes the scene. There are two two-sided drawings measuring 7 by 5 inches which do not have flaps. Done with vivid colors and set in pre - industrial England, this is the story about a lovely little pig named Paddy Pork who has many misadventures when he ventures out on a holiday. When he goes for a swim, a dog steals his clothing. He sees a scarecrow in a nearby field and "borrows" its tuxedo. Because of his fancy garb when he ventures into town he is mistaken for Herr Grunt a concert pianist. He is taken on stage but just before he is meant to perform, he manages to escape and runs home, happy to be with his family again. There is no text and none is needed because the pictures with the moveable flaps, tell the story. Sold with a first edition of the book.
