by Tasha Tudor
A charming, classic animal tale with plenty of heart – and plenty of corgis!
One of Tasha's most beloved books. The fair is the highlight of the year!
In Corgiville, as in many small towns all over America, the biggest event of the year is the fair. And the most exciting thing at the Corgiville Fair is the goat race! Caleb Corgi has spent months training his goat, Josephine, for the big event. But Edgar Tomcat’s goat is fast, too, and Caleb knows that Edgar is not above indulging in some dirty tricks in order to win.
The sights, smells, and all the fun and excitement of a typical small-town fair are captured with humor and affection in Tasha Tudor’s text and marvelously detailed watercolor paintings.
Tasha Tudor has woven a highly imaginative story from various themes and events of her life, including a peculiar Swedish troll species known as boggarts, which seem to be imbued with slightly naughty characteristics. Though written for children, adults seem unable to resist the charm of Corgiville, and it has enthralled families for generations. Originally printed in 1971, this is the early 2000 reprint.
