|Publisher||LITTLE SIMON (SIMON & SCHUSTER,)|
Little Simon (Simon & Schuster,) 2004. New mint in publisher shrink wrap. 10 x 8.3. FIRST EDITION (printing unkown as is still in publishers shrink wrap.) Seven double page pop-ups. Based on the novel by Stephen King, adapted by Peter Abrahams. Illustrations by Alan Dingman. Paper engineering by Kees Moerbeek. Pictorial boards with black cloth spine, Trisha McFarland, a 9-year-old Red Sox fan, accidentally gets separated from her mother and brother while hiking on the Appalachian Trail. As she wanders the wilderness trying to find her way back, her only companions are the baseball games that she hears on her Walkman and, with her batteries running low and her paranoia running high, a hallucination of Red Sox pitcher Tom Gordon. Exceedingly scarce Stephen King publication, in pop-up format – doubtful to ever be accomplished again.
