Santa Cruz, CA: Peter & Donna Thomas, 1991. 12 pp. Approximately 2 1/8 x 2 15/16". LIMITED EDITION of 150 copies, this being #104. Blue cloth over boards with 3 pretty inlaid stones, gilt title on spine, letterpress from photo engravings of six-year old Suzanne's text and pictures with lino cut tint blocks by Donna on publisher's paper, color illustrations, in fine condition. (Bradbury, Thomas 37)

From the bibliography "Good Books" by the Thomases: Donna found Suzanne's manuscript in a pile of school papers and decided to make it into a miniature book. When Suzanne saw the engravings she said "Mom, you left in all my mistakes!" This is the first book they printed with multiple color runs for the illustrations. A beautiful little tale (using phonetic spelling) about an Angel taking a walk and finding pretty rocks. This was the 1992 Miniature Book Society Distinguished Book Award winner.
