A cute book made more charming by Royal Illustrator of Oz Dick Martin: Is This Your Dog? Inscribed on half-title by author “Sally Jackson”, a pseudonym for Reilly & Lee editor Jean Kellogg. This is a departure from Martin’s usual Oz related material, published by Reilly & Lee in 1962–the same time and in a similar format as several of his Oz picture books. The story is about a little boy who finds a dog and tries to find its owner.
The book is in good condition save for a long tear on the last page that I repaired with reversible archival paste. Light foxing to endpapers. This is the first of these books that I’ve seen signed by Kellogg. Oh and fun fact–she had a PhD and wrote her dissertation on the “Catholic Novel in a Period of Convergence”!
