1935 Funny Folks From Gardentown Book by Tony Fraioli | Anthromorphic Characters


A vintage 1930s anthromorphic character book by Tony Fraioli titled Funny Folks From Gardentown. Features cute rhymes about vegetable head characters such as Lester Lemon and Peter Potato. There are 15 pages including the back cover. It measures 9.5" x 12". Copyright 1935 Whitman Publishing.

The book has some issues. It is stapled and the cover/back pages have separated from the rest of the book as shown in the third photo. The cover spine is also split on the top and bottom, leaving on the middle intact. There are some very obvious bends and small tears to the cover. The rest of the pages have mostly minor corner bends, edge wear and other signs of having been handled.

Lots of other books are listed now and I'd be happy to combine shipping.
