The Adventures of Benjamin Pink

New York: Harper & Brothers, 1951, early printing, (1953 Little House... not mentioned;); blue green cloth boards with rabbit; 45 lovely pictures in text, 5.5x8; 151 pp. Juvenile hardback.

Form the 1951 Kirkus review: This fanciful tale about a small, gentlemanly rabbit and his sea-voyage adventures ambles along, somewhat sleepily at times, but the animal characters encountered on the way are enchanting creations. It was a wonderful day for Mr. Pink when, after being shipwrecked on an island, he finds a chest full of treasure. In spite of the warnings of an amused old turtle, Benjamin is determined to bring back his treasure to his village and do Good Works. Though Garth Williams illustrated innumerable books, some of them modern classics, he wrote only this one full length tale. Wonderful illustrations, too tight to scan.
