[light shelfwear and minor soiling to bottom edges of covers, otherwise a very decent clean book; jacket complete but edgeworn all around, with soiling/spotting to rear panel, a few tiny scrapes to spine]. (lithographs) Having drawn from his own childhood for his first two books, "Nino" (1938) and "Golden Gate" (1939), Italian-American printmaker/author/illustrator Angelo here tells the story of a Mexican-American family living on a ranch in the Nevada desert, largely as seen through the experiences of the child Pedro. One element of the story involves another family arriving from Mexico, and the "wonderful new plan" that Pedro's relatives work out to accommodate them. Angelo wrote and illustrated half a dozen or so books of his own, but made his biggest mark as a linotype artist and as the illustrator of about 250 books.
