Description
 
A 12 page picture book. It is paginated, however, since only the text pages are numbered, the page count only goes up to six. It is apart of the "Aunt Louis's Big Picture Book" series.  Tells the story of 'Henny Penny', a hen, and her adventures with her friends as she tries to make her way to the king to tell him the sky is falling. Opposite of the text pages, there are wonderfully and detailed, full color illustrations, which are most likely chromolithographs. The back cover has several  publisher's advertisements on it , and list of other picture books within the series. Covers are partially detached and show heavy edge wear and some soiling. There is also an inscription on the top of the front cover that says "Alice, from you Aunt Susan, Dec. 25th 1876". Binding is loose, but intact, and the interior have slight staining due to the deterioration of the illustrations. Measures 10 3/4" x 9 3/4".
