The son of a man who could not write his own name, Carl Sandburg went on to write over thirty books and earned the title in America of ?The Poet of the People.?

Book is a bound photocopy. Cover Art is missing  Dec 10, 2008
Book is bound photocopy of a New York Public Library edition. It is lacking cover art. So yes, it is hadbound, but it is not an authetic printing of the original.
Interesting, but very strange  Oct 9, 2007
My wife and I love and highly recommend Carl Sandburg's other book "The Wedding Procession of the Rag Doll and the Broom Handle". This is a picture book that is very funny, and was one of her favorite books growing up as a kid.

Rootabaga stories doesn't have any pictures, and is a bit strange. Don't get me wrong, the author is brilliant and the writing is interesting, but it wasn't a fun kid's book like we were expecting.
Great stories for children  Mar 15, 2006
A Sandburg classic - for children. Best read out loud. A collection of very short stories. A quick read. Fun. Non-sensical fantasy. Though a bit dated, it is amazing how relevant most of these stories still feel.
The Best American Bedtime Stories!  Feb 18, 2006
If you have kids, if you are one yourself or if you have ever been one, you want this book. This is Sandburg at his wacky-best. It will have you all laughing.
Soothing, not boring  Dec 9, 2005
As a child, I found Sandburg's Rootabaga Stories quite odd and rather difficult to read to myself beyond the first few stories. Yet as an adult, I think they are the best read-aloud bedtime stories around. The characters and plots are off-kilter enough to be engaging, yet the pace of the stories is calm and gently repetitive.
