Venturous Vegetables at the Frolic Grounds







































Scans from Venturous Vegetables at the "Frolic Grounds," story and illustrations by T. Benjamin Faucett (New York: A. L. Burt Company, 1924). The book was part of Faucett's "Moon Queen" series, which included only three other titles (also published in 1924). The Library of Congress lists these as the only books by Faucett.


The previous owner of this particular copy, an angry little girl named Mernie Bishop (who received the book as a Christmas gift in 1929), attempted to stab to death each and every diabolic vegetable with her trusty pencil.
