Signed with Original Drawing * Squids Will Be Squids: Fresh Morals for Beastly Fables, Jon Scieszka, Lane Smith, 1998 First Edition


Signed by author and illustrator, with a very charming, original illustration.

"Admit it.
You know you'd just love to tell stories about all of the annoying, weird, pain-in-the-neck people you know. But you wouldn't want to be a gossip. S Well here's how it's done. Make like Aesop (and legions of storytellers before him): change the people to animals and add a moral.
Now your stories aren't rude gossip and bad jokes. They're fables! * Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith twisted fairy tales in The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales. Now they've unlocked the ancient secret of animal tales, and the world of fables may never be the same. The moral of the story? If you can't say something nice about someone, change the guys name to Donkey or Squid."

Clean and unmarked with original dust jacket. Jacket is mylar wrapped.
