Library staff recommendation: Get-a-Way and Háry János

Get-a-Way and Háry János
By Maud and Miska Petersham

This book from 1933 looks like it was printed yesterday! The color and texture are especially stunning in this quaint story about Háry János the Obsitos, a Hungarian toy soldier, and his companion, the three-legged Get-a-Way. The beautiful, red-and-white polka dot endpapers lead you into a charming tale where even the sad, battered, and unwanted toys are given a new lease on life in a magical faraway place.
