A very good example of this rare Meggendorfer book, an unfolding summertime scene including a seaside village, bucolic vistas, children shaking a pear tree and playing games, finishing with incoming summer showers. Lothar Meggendorfer was a prolific early innovator in the field of moving picture books & juvenalia.
