Signed by the author and both illustrators on the title page. The famed fantasy and science fiction writer's only children's story, first issued in 1955. A new edition of this charming tale, lavishly illustrated by the famed husband and wife team of Leo and Diane Dillon. Sixteen full page full color illustrations by the Dillons, plus a title page illustration and stunning endsheets. Signed and dated by Ray Bradbury on the title page..."Ray/Bradbury/4/28/01" and additionally signed and dated by both illustrators, also on the title page..."Diane Dillon/Leo Dillon 3/17/01". The author wrote and published this fable over fifty years ago, while his wife was pregnant with their first child, and while he was a relatively unknown young writer, not yet having published Fahrenheit 451, The Martian Chronicles, The Illustrated Man and all the rest.
