First Edition. Long before Richard Scarry or Dr. Seuss, an American artist delighted a generation of children and their parents with hilarious, topsy-turvy illustrations and slightly subversive tales told in rhyme. This was illustrator/author Peter Newell. With humorous text and irresistible drawings, this classic work will delight readers of all ages with the story of Tom Potts' bullet, which leads him through all sorts of unexpected scenes and adventures, each funnier than the last
