Penelope and the Mussels: A Feminist Children's Book Dedicated to the Liberation of Children

Clean and Near Fine in its wonderful pictorial wrappers, with just a touch of very light scuffing at the rear panel. Thin quarto, includes photomontages by the author in brown and half-tone on every page.

Penelope skillfully flies them to the water in her plane, swims out to save the raccoon and then cooks a feast. Published by The Joyful World Press of San Francisco. Near Fine. Item #19658
