This vintage best-seller by renowned children's storyteller and artist Earle Goodenow is packed with bright, colorful illustrations on every page! Angelo Goes to the Carnival is the 3rd book in the series of ‘Angelo and the Cow’ fantasies (see Cow Concert, Cow Voyage and Angelo Goes to Switzerland) about an Italian sea coast town and its offshore life. Angelo, a poor fisherman's boy who has a beautiful singing voice, desperately wants a costume for the upcoming carnival coming to town. There seems to be no hope of getting one until, feeling sorry for himself, he takes a rowboat out on the sea but becomes shipwrecked. The fish take him to a grotto and are so charmed when he sings for them that they give him a treasure chest. Annotated with foreword and biography.
