This product is unavailable

The Wing On a Flea is the very first book Ed Emberley wrote and illustrated, and was originally published in 1962.  This lovely book of line drawings about basic shapes and what they could become foreshadowed his later, well-known, how-to-draw series of books.  Upon its release, The Wing On a Flea was named one of the New York Times ten best illustrated books of the year, and was an ALA Notable Book.  AMMO have reissued this classic Emberley title for a new generation of kids.

Ed Emberley is an award-winning American artist and illustrator, best known for children's picture books.  He studied art at the Massachusetts School Of Art in Boston, from which he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting and illustration.  He also studied at the Rhode Island School Of Design.  The Wing on a Flea was an ALA Notable Book and made the New York Times list of best-illustrated books for that year.  He also received a Caldecott Honor in 1967 as illustrator of One Wide River to Cross, and his books have been honoured on the New York Times annual Best Illustrated Books List.
